Foxconn falls deeper into the red

first_img KCS-content Share Tags: NULL Tuesday 31 August 2010 8:44 pm Foxconn falls deeper into the red Foxconn, maker of the iconic iPhone, saw its value tumble yesterday after revealing another set of disappointing results.Its stock fell almost eight per cent yesterday morning, its biggest single-day fall in 17 months, after reporting first-half earnings fell deeper into the red.Foxconn recorded a January to June loss of $142.64m (£92.9m), far worse than the $18.7m loss it recorded a year earlier, hit by falling handset prices and higher depreciation costs.Foxconn blamed the “difficult” and “volatile” handset market, as well as higher costs for the loss.Analysts said yesterday it would take time for the group, which manufactures electronic devices for global brands including Apple, Dell, Nokia and Hewlett-Packard, to benefit from relocating its manufacturing facilities to inner China from higher cost coastal cities.Shares in the Taiwanese company closed down 7.8 per cent to HK$5.13. At one stage, they fell as low as HK$4.98 – the lowest level since 22 July.

There is a small land of less than 20 pyong (19. 76 square feet). Applying it to the Seoul City Building Code, its building coverage is less than 60%, meaning its building area on which to raise a building is less than 12 pyong (11.86 square feet). There is not only the coverage rate. In the residential area of Korea, Architectural Slant Line for Daylight is applied to the north of the land. The building which has been raised one floor after another is cut off by this invisible building limit line, and, to make things worse, part of the first floor has to be vacated for the parking space. Even worse, a certain amount of space inside a house should be set apart for a vertical traffic line connecting each of the floors. Building a building on a small land is like walking a tightrope trying not to be off the limit line of structure. Save this picture!© Kyung RohA floor plan drawn to max out the limit line would leave most of the client in dismay. Yet, there is no compromise when it comes to the limit line of structure. If you cannot beat a system, join it: you have no choice but to build a small house unless you own a large land.On the while, there is something more lenient than the limit line of structure, and that is the cross-section limit line of structure. It whispers some sweet words into your ear, “Live up to some conditions, you will be able to build this high building on your small land.” This is the beauty of the small land. To build a building on this small land, we brew a project, thinking a cross-section is a plane and did not think of the plane until the outline of the project came out. In this project, a cross section was a plane.Save this picture!© Kyung RohThe volume of a building was set from the beginning, which is the maximum area, imposed by the limit line within which to build a building on a small land on the budget. Deploy the programs needed for your new life, keeping this volume, and try to modify the size of the space as well. Depending on how you organize them, your house will have completely different characteristics – a house for holding exhibitions , a house for a total privacy, a house whose living taking precedence over anything else, a house whose bedrooms taking precedence over anything else, a house for throwing parties, a house for economic activities. While proceeding with your project, you can get an indirect glimpse into what lives your clients have led. The project was completed through the compromises and understanding of each other’s life. The first floor will become the space for the work and commercial activities they wanted to do. Since the space leads to the parking lot if you open the folding door, you can expand it weather permitting. The front door is separated from this space. It is for separating things happening on the first floor from those going on the other parts of the house. Save this picture!© Kyung RohSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Kyung RohOnce you enter through the front door, you will be invited to the space for washing your hand. You will be invited to more public space before entering the room. The second floor will be dedicated to the living room and kitchen for the husband and wife to meet their guest and spend most of their time. The third floor will serve as the most private space for the bedroom, the dressing room, and the restroom, since they hoped that the bedrooms will be only for the couple. The slant wall caused by the limit line of structure makes the bedroom space taller in its height. We lowered the level of the bedroom for storage space, which caused the kitchen on the second to be separated from the living room space and turned the bedroom and the restroom/dress room into different spaces. The fourth floor is for working. The volume cut off by the limit line of structure becomes a rooftop terrace. They wanted they could get to the rooftop directly from the workroom.Save this picture!© Kyung RohProject gallerySee allShow lessInternational Photography Competition “Cities Without Architecture”Call for SubmissionsKPF’s One Bayfront Plaza to Share Title of Miami’s Tallest TowerArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeB.U.S ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeoulSouth KoreaPublished on March 13, 2017Cite: “The First House in Hyochangdong / B.U.S Architecture” 13 Mar 2017.

Donors think charities should change the way they communicate

by ,

first_img Howard Lake | 10 February 2010 | News Donors think charities should change the way they communicate AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Three quarters of donors think charities need to change how they communicate, according to a new report from the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).The report was based on the responses of over 200 CAF and non-CAF donors who were asked for their views on how the recession affects charities and what they thought charities could do to alleviate the effects of the recession.A key recommendation was using new forms of communication with 70 per cent suggesting social networking and 65 per cent email. A huge 85 per cent thought charities should be forging closer links with each other.Ninety four per cent thought charities should focus on their efficiency to weather the recession and 92 per cent that they need to show their achievements to donors.Donors also think that charities should diversify their income streams by using volunteers, applying for more grants, asking for donations of goods and dedicating more resources to fundraising. CAF points out that some of these suggestions can be considered to be partly drive by a lack of knowledge of the issues that affect charities and how these can make it more difficult to achieve the suggestions.However, it also says that charities should be more aware of their public perception and to make sure they are communicating successes, activities and ways of working effectively together.The report is free and downloadable from http://www.cafonline.org/connectdonors About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

October Club partners with MS Trust to fund Champions project

by ,

first_img The October Club has partnered with the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Trust to help the charity provide specialist care for people living with MS.The October Club has chosen to raise funds for the MS Trust’s Advanced MS Champions project, which will bring care and support to people living with complex and challenging symptoms of the condition.The MS Trust estimates up to 40,000 people in the UK have advanced MS. However, its research has found that many people with advanced MS report losing contact with MS specialist services as their condition gets worse. The October Club’s support will enable the MS Trust to launch a three-year programme to pioneer new Advanced MS Champions to bring co-ordinated care to people in urgent need.Mark Pumfrey, chair of The October Club, said:“Since 1987 the October Club has been proud to give something back, by helping small charities make a huge difference. We’re delighted that for our 30th anniversary we will be helping a great charity, the MS Trust, transform support for people living with a desperately challenging condition.”The MS Trust’s programme will fund six new Champions over a three-year period in select locations, to trial different approaches and models of care ahead of a national roll-out. These Champions will work with people with MS and their families to understand their needs, using their specialist knowledge to help them manage their symptoms, and helping to identify potential issues before they become emergencies. They will also co-ordinate care from other specialists including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, palliative and social care, to provide joined-up support.Since 1987 the October Club has raised over £10 million for transformational projects, each year choosing a charity to partner with and giving an average of £500,000 for each cause.

Journalist’s long jail term designed to intimidate

Ismayilova’s only crime was to investigate high-level government corruption with courage and persistence. This trial sends a very powerful intimidatory message to all her fellow journalists in Azerbaijan.”Ismayilova was not even allowed to finish reading her final statement during the penultimate hearing yesterday. Most independent journalists and observers were kept at a distance throughout the long trial.Arrested on 5 December 2014, Ismayilova has already spent nine months in provisional detention on fluctuating trumped-up charges.In the end she was convicted on almost all of the charges except the particularly absurd charge that she had incited a fellow journalist to attempt suicide.After crushing all media pluralism, the Azerbaijani authorities have been orchestrating an unprecedented crackdown on independent journalists since last year.Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Ismayilova and the 11 other journalists and bloggers held in Azerbaijan in connection with their reporting, and urges Baku’s international partners to raise her case in all bilateral talks.Azerbaijan is ranked 162nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Read Khadija Ismayilova’s final statement in full.

The police have refused to investigate.“We are deeply shocked by the violent and humiliating treatment Soomro received at the hands of people who took him to task for criticising the brother of an adviser of Sindh’s chief minister,” the press freedom organisation said. “The attitude of the local police is appalling. We call for an immediate investigation, and for those responsible for the attack to be severely punished.”Soomro was returning home when several supporters of parliamentarian Ali Bukhsh Mangerio forced him into their car at gunpoint and took him to a gas station, where they tortured him and shaved his moustache, eyebrows and half of his head. Soomro lost consciousness as a result of the pain. When he came round, he had been dumped at a bus stop.In rural areas, shaving a man is considered very humiliating especially when, as was the case with Soomro, his shaven head was shown on local television. Journalists in Umerkot said the local police refused to receive Soomro’s complaint for fear of reprisals.last_img read more

Aging desktop source of attorney’s accidental cat filter

by ,

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – February 10, 2021 Aging desktop source of attorney’s accidental cat filter Facebook WhatsApp RICHMOND, Texas (AP) — Texas attorney Rod Ponton’s appearance as a fluffy kitten during an online court hearing provided a moment of levity to a pandemic- and Zoom-fatigued world. But that specific, adorable filter may be tough to find for anyone looking to replicate the viral moment. Ponton told The Associated Press that he was using his assistant’s 10-year-old desktop Dell computer when he logged in for a routine civil forfeiture hearing Tuesday in Presidio County, Texas, where he serves as prosecutor. Ponton says his appearance looked normal on the webcam as he waited to be let into the Zoom hearing in Judge Roy Ferguson’s court. But when the hearing began, to his shock and dismay, he was a cat. “I think everybody in the world’s seen the video now and heard me trying as I struggled to try to un-cat myself,” he said. Ponton said he’s still trying to untangle the mystery, but he believes the computer’s software and the assistant’s young child are the likeliest culprits. Texas-based Dell Technologies says the aging desktop was likely in need of a software update. “Mr. Ponton was likely running an outdated driver which may have held him in cat filter limbo a little too long,” said Glen Robson, chief technology officer at Dell’s client solutions group. “While those of us techies were probably cringing watching that video, I’m sure cat lovers everywhere were celebrating.” Video filters and virtual backgrounds have exploded in popularity as much of the world’s activities moved online during the pandemic. One commonly used program is Snap Camera, which lets users download all kinds of filters, including one that makes a person appear like a potato (as one woman famously did early in the pandemic). Separately, Zoom offers filters of its own through its app, though none as realistic as Ponton’s attorney-cat. Mishaps in online courtrooms have occurred throughout the pandemic as the legal community adjusts to remote proceedings. A Georgia case last year was disrupted by hold music, background noise and the neglected mute button. And in Florida, a judge told attorneys they must get out of bed and put on clothing before appearing on video for proceedings. Ferguson, the judge who oversaw Tuesday’s hearing and posted the video online, told The Associated Press he had no idea the clip would become an instant hit. “My phone started to melt within about two minutes, and I realized that this was going to take on a life of its own,” Ferguson said. In one of the more hilarious moments, Ponton tells the judge: “I’m prepared to go forward” with the hearing, despite his feline appearance. Ferguson said everyone involved was committed to maintaining the dignity of the court, despite the absurdity of the situation. Ponton was good-humored about his new notoriety, telling the AP: “I’m happy to give the world a laugh because I think we needed it after the last few months.” ——— Bleed reported from Little Rock, Arkansas.

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The myriad issues plaguing the Illinois Condominium Law arena have been subject to several recent opinions from two separate divisions within the 1st District Appellate Court.  Unfortunately, the contrasting court rulings ultimately serve to confuse more than clarify. The string of new cases all focus on a particular section of the Illinois Condominium Property Act, which provides that a foreclosure sale purchaser must pay condominium assessments “from and after the first day of the month” following the foreclosure sale in order to “confirm the extinguishment” of a condominium association’s lien. The Illinois Supreme Court, in 1010 Lake Shore Assoc. v. Deutsche Bank National Trust Co., 2015 IL 118372, had previously ruled that a condominium association’s lien for pre-foreclosure sale assessments was owed in full by a foreclosure sale purchaser who failed to pay any assessments, as the lien’s extinguishment was never confirmed under the statute.  In 2017’s 5510 Sheridan Road Condominium Association v. U.S. Bank, 2017 IL App (1st) 160279), where payment was made approximately seven months after confirmation, the Sixth Division 1st District Appellate Court ruled that foreclosure sale purchasers are not subject to any payment deadline in order to confirm the extinguishment of a condominium association’s lien, stating that if the General Assembly had wished to include a strict deadline, they certainly would have done so.In contrast, just months later, the Second Division of the same Appellate Court in Country Club Estates Condominium Assoc. v. Bayview Loan Servicing, LLC, 2017 IL App (1st) 162459, instead ruled that “prompt” payment was required. The court stated that to the extent 5510 Sheridan Road “may be read as imposing no timing deadline whatsoever on foreclosure buyers, we find that conclusion to be inconsistent with 1010 Lake Shore.” The court further implied that seven months may be too long, absent extenuating circumstances, but remanded to the lower court for a ruling on whether prompt payment had in fact occurred.  Seemingly in response, earlier this year the Sixth Division fired back with Quadrangle House Condominium Association v. U.S. Bank, N.A., 2018 IL App (1st) 171713, where payment was made approximately nine months after confirmation. In rejecting the notion that payment must be “prompt,” the court stated that 1010 Lake Shore “did not hold that prompt payment is a condition precedent” and that the “payment of post-purchase assessments, whenever made, is the step necessary” to confirm extinguishment.On the heels of this ruling, this same Sixth Division issued another opinion, V&T Investment Corporation v. West Columbia Place Condominium Association, 2018 IL App (1st) 170436, where partial payment was made approximately four months after sale yet less than two months after confirmation. The court first confirmed that assessments were owed as of the first month following the sale, not the first month following confirmation of the sale. However, rather confusingly, the court then looked to whether the payment was “prompt,” citing to Country Club Estates to determine that payment was indeed prompt, as it was made shortly after the confirmation of the sale.Taking full advantage of the apparent confusion in its neighboring division, the Second Division of Illinois’ 1st District Appellate Court responded in June of 2018 with U.S. Bank, N.A. v. Quadrangle House Condominium Association, 2018 IL App (1st) 171711. To muddy the waters even further, this new case involves virtually the same parties as Quadrangle House Condominium Association v. U.S. Bank, N.A., 2018 IL App (1st) 171713, decided by the Sixth Division earlier in 2018 on a separate unit—thereby creating two “Quadrangle” cases out of the same district, in the same year, with vastly different interpretations. Although the earlier Sixth Division’s Quadrangle held that promptness wasn’t even a requirement, the new Quadrangle by the Second Division specifically addressed the Sixth Division’s apparent change of tune in V&T Investment Corporation v. West Columbia Place Condominium Association before reasserting its position that promptness is, in fact, a necessity.  In its analysis, the new Quadrangle Court pointed out that sale confirmation occurred in the month following the foreclosure sale, with payments to the association beginning less than two months thereafter, concluding that payment under this factual situation was prompt. The court’s focus on the sale confirmation date, rather than merely the date of the sale itself, implies that it remains an important factor in determining promptness. However, it seems clear that the only thing truly certain in this evolving area of law is that resolution is far from certain.last_img read more
