That’s why we expected economy minister Elena Salgado to come up with a recapitalisation plan that went the whole hog. But the €20bn package outlined late on Monday night is simply too small: it is little wonder that Spanish banks fell across the board yesterday, as investors digested the government’s mealy-mouthed policy response. Analysts at RBS reckon the real cost of recapitalising the Spanish banks is around €50bn, on top of the €14bn already committed by the state-backed Fund for Orderly Bank Restructuring (FROB).For Spain’s domestic-only banks, the situation looks dire. Based on the assumption that the banks will be stressed according to the parameters set by the 2009 US Federal Reserve test, RBS says that Banesto needs an extra €5.7bn to withstand a financial shock in 2011. That is a staggering 127 per cent of its market capitalisation. Bankinter needs €2.7bn (117 per cent of its market cap); Popular €7bn (110 per cent); and Sabadell €5.3bn (102 per cent). Things are markedly better for the more diversified banks, Santander and BBVA, which need an extra €17bn and €10.4bn respectively – less than a quarter of their market cap. Of course, these estimates show just how inept the Spanish government’s plan is, even if it does go some way towards higher capital levels in the banking sector. Investors should sell off Spanish banks while they can. Tuesday 25 January 2011 9:01 pm Share KCS-content It’s going to take more than €20bn Tags: NULL whatsapp

The Preston Hollow residence was designed for a couple seeking a new home for their growing art collection. Located on an unusually shaped lot of just over 1 acre in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, the home is sited to maximize the views from the home and create a vanishing point to the horizon from the primary living spaces. Save this picture!© Scott FrancesThese views are framed by a series of exterior and interior planes that allow the landscape to extend from exterior to interior. Located toward the back of the lot the house creates a courtyard of privacy with the lawn and pool terrace as the backdrop, and in doing so creates long views from the front of the home, creating the feeling of an expansive landscape. Buffered by the landscape on the sweeping edge of the lot, the home provides the privacy on an otherwise exposed corner lot.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Scott FrancesBodron+Fruit designed the architecture and interiors with a rich but subdued palette, using the natural hues from the marble, limestone, and white oak floors to complement the owner’s art collection. Furniture was selected for its clean lines and comfort; united in tone, but varied in texture. Numerous architectural details abound, such as the decorative pivoting metal gate and custom door hardware, to provide the finishing touches.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesIn an effort to mitigate the Texas sun, the west side of the home is largely solid with light colored limestone, while the south and east sides of the home have large expanses of glass with deep overhangs to provide natural daylight and minimal heat gain. To actively control the sun, the home employs motorized shading when needed. Save this picture!© Scott FrancesThe home features 26 solar panels along the roof to reduce its energy consumption and at times return power to the grid. To further reduce the environmental impact of the home, all stormwater from the roof surface is directed to a 10,000-gallon underground water cistern that is used in the irrigation of the site. Other energy-conscious features include geothermal heating and cooling as well as the use of foam insulation.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesProject gallerySee allShow lessArchive and Artifact: The Virtual and the PhysicalExhibition OpeningM·Cube / MVRDVSelected Projects Share Houses United States Year: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/903848/preston-hollow-residence-bodron-plus-fruit Clipboard Lead Architects: Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/903848/preston-hollow-residence-bodron-plus-fruit Clipboard Architects: Bodron+Fruit Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily “COPY” Photographs: Scott Frances Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2015 Manufacturers: Western Window Systems, Walker Zanger, Alkusari, Valli & Valli Svend Fruit AIA, Jason Trevino CopyHouses•Dallas, United States Projects Preston Hollow Residence / Bodron+Fruit CopyAbout this officeBodron+FruitOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDallasUnited StatesPublished on October 16, 2018Cite: “Preston Hollow Residence / Bodron+Fruit” 16 Oct 2018.

+ posts printThe Arkansas-Pine Bluff Lions came into Fort Worth to play TCU on Wednesday in a game that was rescheduled from Tuesday due to rain. The Horned Frogs overcame a bizarre top half of the first inning, in which they gave up three runs, to win 17-3. The game started with back-to-back bunt singles for APB as they were able to capitalize on three hits, a hit batter, and a throwing error to take a 3-0 lead. TCU pitcher Devon Roedahl was able to escape the inning with just 12 pitches thrown, despite the three runs given up. The Horned Frogs quickly answered back with two runs of their own in the bottom of the first thanks to a triple from 2nd basemen Cam Warner and an RBI double from infielder Josh Watson. TCU proceeded to gain the lead back in the bottom of the 2nd when two runners scored on a throwing error to make it 4-3 in favor of the Frogs. The game remained 4-3 between the 3rd and 5th innings due in large part to great pitching from both starting pitchers, who settled down nicely after the first inning. Roedahl went three innings while giving up two earned and striking out two. The TCU bullpen provided great relief, holding the Lions scoreless for the remainder of the game.The Horned Frogs pulled away from any scare of an upset byErupting for eight runs in the bottom of the sixth. Watson had a two-RBI triple in the inning and Elliott Barzilli touched them all with a three-run home run, which made it 12-3. The Frogs cruised from that point, adding five more runs in the eighth inning leading to a solid victory.TCU improved to a record of 3-1 on the season after they took the weekend series versus LMU two games to one. The Horned Frogs are now on a three-game win streak as they look to carry their success into this weekend’s tournament in Houston. TCU will take on Louisiana Lafayette on Friday, Rice on Saturday, and Houston on Sunday.

A warning letter was sent to the UK Government on 21 March andmanufacturing union Amicus claims that a key complaint concerns the measurementof additional time worked voluntarily. The union complained to the Commission that the directivelimiting the working week to 48 hours had been inadequately implemented. General secretary Roger Lyons said: “Britons work thelongest hours in Europe. This decision will cut excessive working timeconsiderably, slash stress and bring us closer to the level of working hoursenjoyed throughout the rest of Europe.”UK businesses are concerned by the red tape that themeasurement of additional hours would generate. The CBI called it a”bureaucratic nightmare”.The government has until 21 May to respond, and if the EC isnot satisfied that UK law has been brought into line with the directive thecase could be taken to European Court of Justice. www.ft.comTemps could get equal benefits as permanent staff under directiveTemporary staff working across Europewill be entitled to the same pay and conditions as permanent employees from dayone of employment, if proposals by the official responsible for driving the EUagency workers directive are agreed.

(globalhr May 2002)Economic recovery bleak for Germany as strikes loomGermany’s economic recovery has beenthrown into doubt by a fall in an important business indicator in April. The Ifo Index fell in the same week as a new report by the OECDpredicted that economic growth in Germany would hit only 0.7 per cent thisyear. The country is also facing high unemployment, rising tradeunion militancy and a spate of high-profile corporate bankruptcies, which arecombining to undermine the Social Democratic-led Government’s attempts to bere-elected in September. The massive IG Metall engineering union called on thousands ofworkers to vote in strike ballots in May following the collapse of wagenegotiations for the sector’s 3.6 million workers. www.faz.netUK workers worse off than their European counterpartsPeople in the UK work harder, spendless time on holiday and pay more in tax and for goods than other Europeans. A study by UK firm Bradford & Bingley shows Britishemployees clock up an average 8.7 hours a day at work compared to 7.7 hours inItaly, 7.9 in France and 8 in Germany. The research reveals that average household income in the UK isthe highest in Europe at £35,917, but British workers pay more tax and socialsecurity. UK employees also have the least time off, with only 28 dayseach year on average, including public and annual holidays, compared to 47 daysin France, 46 in Spain and 41 days in Germany. Ian Darby, group commercial director at Bradford & Bingley,said: “We found that, rather than being rewarded for longer working hoursand fewer days holiday, everyday items cost us far more than our Europeancounterparts – and we suffer a higher tax burden.”www.bradford-bingley.co.ukHR seen as the weakest linkSuccessful global companies do not have world-class HR teams,according to research by a leading business school. The report, Measuring the Competi-tive Fitness of Global Firms,claims that HR has consistently been regarded as one of the weaker capabilitiesof global firms for the five years that the report has been published.The study, by Professor Jean-Claude Larreche of Insead BusinessSchool in France, examined 12 management capabilities of 326 leading globalcompanies, including mission and vision, marketing strategy, organisation andsystems and HR. HR averaged a score of 64 in 2002, with scores of between 65and 79 being regarded as ‘world class’. The quality of HR management was found to vary by industrysector, with computer and electronics companies performing best and finance andinsurance organisations worst. Paul Belcher, partner of Watson Wyatt, which sponsored theresearch, said: “The trend is in the right direction. HR is an area inwhich many companies have been closely focused in recent years and I think wecan confidently predict that world-class companies will be matched by havingworld-class HR in next year’s report.”www.watsonwyatt.comFirms fail to invest in future leadersFirms are failing to respond tomanagerial doubts over their leadership potential, claims research from the US.The study, by Conference Board, shows that only one-third ofthe executives surveyed rate their future leadership capabilities as excellentor good.

The report’s co-author said: “Hyper competition,fast-changing technology and closer scrutiny from corporate boards are puttingincreasing pressure on companies to develop effective leaders for the future.”But while some firms are taking action, less than half ofthose surveyed say that developing future leaders is a major priority for theirtop management.”More than 150 large organisations in the US were surveyed inthe Development Dimensions International-sponsored research. www.conference-board.orgUK faces unemployment jump if it joins the euroUK unemployment would jump by morethan a quarter of a million in three years if the UK were to enter the Europeaneconomic and monetary union, according to research.
