In contrast oil and gas firms saw their corporation tax receipts plummet from £10.3bn in 2009 to just £5.5bn as they struggled in the wake of the recession. Overall the amount of tax paid by the financial services industry fell £8bn – down from £61.4bn in 2009, which equated to 12.1 per cent of total tax receipts.The total tax paid as a percentage of profit was 48.5 per cent, down from 57.4 per cent the year before.More than 1m are employed by the sector, equivalent to 3.5 per cent of the workforce, with total employment tax of £24.5bn. The average amount of tax paid by each employee was more than £40,000, on a salary of £71,236. The number employed fell 7.9 per cent year-on-year.National insurance contributions accounted for 39.7 per cent of taxes, with VAT at 23.9 per cent and corporation tax at 16.6 per cent.Corporation of London policy chairman Stuart Fraser told City A.M. the findings prove the City is a vital contributor to the UK.He said: “This report shows the vital contribution made by the financial services industry to the Exchequer even as the effects of the crisis weighed on institutions across the City. I was surprised the drop was only £8bn, given the effects of the financial crisis. Next year, I suspect that the £8bn will be almost recovered. I’m very concerned that new bonus rules could drive talent away from the UK.”Anthony Browne, the Mayor of London’s adviser for economic development, said: “These figures are a good message for the rest of Britain. It is in everyone’s interest that there is a thriving financial services sector.”Angela Knight, chief executive of the British Bankers’ Association, said: “This shows just how significant the UK financial services industry is to the UK economy in tax and employment. “We have always maintained that the industry is a big taxpayer – it pays a lot of tax despite perceptions to the contrary. If this is what the industry is contributing, in a year like this, then imagine what it would pay in better years.” Luke Johnson, who founded Pizza Express and is a former Channel 4 chairman, added: “This is a tangible demonstration of the vital role that financial services and the Square Mile plays in the UK economy. It is the engine of growth for the capital city and, to put it bluntly, the UK as a whole. If we demonise the City and the key players emigrate, then the nation as a whole will be losers. last_img read more

New York church answers bishop’s call to assist refugees

By that definition these refugees do not seem to want to become part of our melting pot but rather by force of arms or sheer numbers make The Us an Islamic nation governed by Sharia Law.

Volunteers included parishioners and community members.[Episcopal News Service] When St. John’s rector, the Rev. Joseph D. Greene III, read Bishop of New York Andrew Dietsche’s call to assist refugees at the vestry’s Sept. 15, 2015, meeting, there was no hesitation. Vestry members and parishioners embraced the call. Initially interested in co-sponsoring a refugee family, St. John’s learned that Westchester County doesn’t have a refugee resettlement agency. The church then turned its attention to working to change that, while at the same time exploring immediate ways to assist refugees.St. John’s was one of a handful of Episcopal churches in Westchester County that came together in November 2015 to form the Westchester Refugee Task Force. The group has grown to include over 30 churches, synagogues, Islamic centers, civic groups and individuals. Together, they are supporting resettlement efforts in neighboring Connecticut and are working with two refugee resettlement agencies to try to set up operations in Westchester County.Easter Appeal to Benefit Pre-School Refugee ChildrenWhile St. John’s continued to work with the task force, a special opportunity to help refugees arose in Spring 2016.This year, in recognition of the bishop’s call, the vestry selected a refugee resettlement agency in New Haven, Connecticut, – Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services – as the beneficiary of its 2016 Easter Appeal. Not only is IRIS the agency in closest proximity to St. John’s, but its Episcopal roots are strong: it was founded by the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut in 1982, and it is an affiliate of Episcopal Migration Ministries, the Episcopal Church’s refugee resettlement agency.Specifically, funds were raised to support IRIS’s Early Learning Program, a program aimed at providing “school readiness” skills for the children, while at the same time enabling their mothers to attend IRIS’s daily English classes. More than a fundraising campaign, the appeal included opportunities for parishioners and community members to learn about the plight of refugees and the refugee resettlement process in the United States. During the drive, which ran through the seven-week Easter season, parishioners had the opportunity to learn more about refugee resettlement firsthand from IRIS Executive Director Chris George. St. John’s parishioners raised $32,000 to support refugees.Furniture DriveFrank Pierson not only loaded and unloaded furniture but also drove a 24-foot-rental truck to New Haven, Connecticut. Photo: Linnet TseAs the task force continued to work with agencies to explore the possibility of resettling refugees locally, its members became impatient and wanted to act to help refugees. St. John’s parishioners, Jmel Wilson and Wendy McFee, suggested to the task force that the church host a furniture drive for refugees arriving through IRIS to Connecticut this summer. They had no idea what the furniture drive would yield, or exactly how to get furniture to New Haven. The overwhelming community support – measured in both furniture and volunteer hours – showed that many others shared their passion.Sixty-seven local families arrived in SUVs and trucks — some of them borrowed or rented — filled with gently-used furniture.  At the end of the five-day drive, more than 350 pieces of furniture filled the lower level of the church, including sofas, tables, chairs, bed frames, dressers and lamps — enough to furnish apartments for ten refugee families. More than 50 volunteers assisted in collecting, transporting, loading and unloading three truckloads and several mini-vans of furniture, including eight teens who are part of the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Chapter of the Lion’s Heart, a national teen service organization, and a handful of Yale football players who helped unload the trucks in New Haven. One Larchmont resident, Greg Mouracade, the president and owner of a professional moving and storage company, provided a 26-foot moving van and an experienced crew to help transport 3,000 cubic feet of furniture to New Haven“The overwhelming response of donors was gratitude … to finally have some concrete way of responding to the horrifying news stories and pictures. To know that what they were doing was going to directly benefit people who had suffered so much,” said Wilson.“Several donors came into the room and looked at the volume of the collection and were visibly moved by the generosity of our community,” said Wilson. “They would ask, ‘What else do you need?’  ‘What else can we do for these people?’  There was a great sense of relief that we are finally able to help.”McFee shared that it was particularly touching on Father’s Day, the second day of the drive, to see so many fathers bring their children to the drive and explain its purpose to them.IRIS is one 30 affiliates of Episcopal Migration Ministries. Finding affordable housing and providing furniture is one of the first tasks an affiliate does to assist refugees in beginning new lives in the United States. This year, IRIS expects to resettle 420 refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, the Congo and Eritrea— Linnet Tse is junior warden at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Larchmont, New York.

In order to become legally-recognized refugees, people must be able to document that they would be harmed if they were to return to their homes. Beyond that, the US checks for criminal backgrounds and a variety of other things. It can take years for a refugee family to be approved to move to the United States.I am not sure what types of refugees you have encountered. The refugees I have known have come from a variety of countries, some Muslim, some not. When I was in seminary, I volunteered with IRIS for a time, and tutored a family that had spent three years in refugee camps in various countries before they moved to Connecticut. The family included an elderly and nearly crippled grandmother, as well as two parents and three children. A few years later, I volunteered with a Habitat for Humanity build for a different refugee family. The oldest of their four children (two of whom had been born in refugee camps, and were now in middle school) had just graduated from high school and was looking forward to getting a nursing degree. I remember that they asked what church we had come from, and were disappointed to learn that it was too far away for them to be able to visit via public transportation. I now serve on the board of the Salvation Army, and have met some of the Iranian Christian refugee children whom they tutor (they are incredibly enthusiastic bell-ringers during holiday kettle drives).In short, I would encourage you to visit, or perhaps to volunteer with programs that serve refugee communities. All kinds of organizations (Christian and otherwise) have reached out to welcome them, so you probably won’t have to look far. I believe you may be very pleasantly surprised by the people you meet.

Formerly called “the most modern home built in the world” by the Encyclopedia Britannica, the Malin Residence was the stereotypical scientific vision of the future brought to life when it was built by American architect John Lautner in 1960. Built for the client Malin Lautner, a young aircraft engineer, the design of the residence was in fact an engineering challenge due to its location on a forty-five degree slope in an earthquake-prone region. The house, nicknamed the “Chemosphere” hovers 30 feet over the city of Los Angeles resembling a UFO aircraft.Save this picture!© Ted VanCleaveRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAWoodLunawoodThermo Timber and Industrial ThermowoodWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersWindowsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWhen John Lautner was given the site in 1960, there were two common methods for building houses on the difficult sloped land. The ground could be cut to create a level platform or the house could be supported on an open steel framework. Save this picture!PlanThe client, however, had a small budget (only $30,000) so Lautner instead took advantage of the client’s extensive imagination and rejected both structural methods for one that would cost about half of the conventional solution with retaining walls and land drains. Lautner perched the entire one-story octagon on a single 30-foot concrete column, leaving the natural surroundings untouched.Save this picture!Courtesy of John Lautner FoundationSteel struts shoot out from the single column to support the floor of the house. The concrete column, however, is not the element that supports the roof of the residence. It actually does not even continue up into the interior. The inside of the house is a column-free open space. Save this picture!© trianglemodernisthouses.comThe north side of the house contains the public spaces, such as the living room, kitchen, and dining room, and the south side facing the hill slices into 4 bedrooms and a bathroom. At the peak of the house, where the column would have been, Lautner placed a circular rooflight in order to provide lighting in the deepest part of the plan. Under this rooflight there is a fireplace and a sitting area.Save this picture!SectionThe structure of the residence is made of steel and timber, and the roof is supported by curved portal frames of laminated wood. These materials were chosen due to the earthquake zone it’s located in, and the house has actually withstood hurricanes and floods, proving its structure successful. Window openings were placed along the perimeter of the house, and there is even a window on the bottom part of the structure looking over the car port. Save this picture!© Sara SacknerThis car port is the beginning of the entrance to the house. After the car is parked a private furnicular, or an inclined railway, ascends up the slope and lands at a narrow bridge which spans from the ground to the entrance near the kitchen.Save this picture!© Ted VanCleaveLautner’s futuristic “flying saucer” quickly caught the eyes of the Hollywood industry and the house has since appeared in films including Body Double and Charlie’s Angels. The modern icon floats above the city and was named one of the all time top ten houses in Los Angeles.Save this picture!© trianglemodernisthouses.comProject gallerySee allShow lessGoogle Earth Pro 5.2ArticlesAPAP Open School / LOT-EKArticles Share 1960 Projects AD Classics: Malin “Chemosphere” Residence / John Lautner United States Copy+ 13Houses•Los Angeles, United States ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/64345/ad-classics-malin-chemosphere-residence-john-lautner Clipboard Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/64345/ad-classics-malin-chemosphere-residence-john-lautner Clipboard “COPY” Architects: John Lautner Area Area of this architecture project Photographslast_img read more

The Ecoquartier Jonction project is unique in Switzerland and Europe in terms of its size and its ability to question the ways in which people live in our society. Located in the heart of Geneva, in a central urban location, it brings together more than 333 dwellings, 35 arcades, a crèche, heritage depots and an underground car park. Save this picture!© Eik FrenzelThe centrepiece of this district, the CODHA building is the embodiment of the social loft, a hybrid concept that brings together two forms of housing: on the one hand, social housing – its domestic realities and economic requirements – and on the other hand, the imaginary loft – housing with generous and shared spatiality, born of the gentrification of industrial spaces. The social loft embodies, through the addition of its opposites, a plural manifesto of living together, both in the city and in housing.Save this picture!© Eik FrenzelSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Roman KellerThe CODHA Building realises this concept in the possibilities of flexible, vast, shared and unconventional housing; labelled Minergie P Eco and designed according to a participative approach, it houses 113 dwellings, whose diversity of sizes (2 to 25 rooms) meets the plurality of needs. It also houses community spaces scattered throughout the floors, activity areas on the ground floor, and heritage deposits in the basement. Finally, community life is structured around four green roofs that offer distinct activities.Save this picture!© Eik FrenzelProject gallerySee allShow lessNew Conceptions of Sustainable Organic ArchitectureSymposiumTracce – talks about ideas, inspirations and provocationsLecture SeriesProject locationAddress:Geneva, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.
