The warning comes after Philip Hammond (pictured), the transport secretary, refused to go ahead with the first phase of relaxing liquids restrictions, which is due this week. From 29 April, passengers on long-haul flights from outside the EU would have been able to take duty-free liquids as hand luggage on connecting flights at UK airports. But Hammond has told airport owners that restrictions will not be lifted, citing ongoing security concerns. Siim Kallas, the EU transport commissioner, said all countries must meet the agreed April 2013 deadline for lifting the ban in full, warning: “If some countries lift the ban and some do not it will be disastrous.”Airport operators are worried that anything other than a simultaneous lifting of the ban will cause delays when passengers travel from a country that allows them to take liquids on board to one that doesn’t. The UK’s move means that travellers connecting at Heathrow will have liquid duty free purchases confiscated, while those passing through other EU jurisdictions will not.The rules were introduced in Europe in August 2006 after UK police uncovered a terrorist plot to use bombs made from liquid explosives mixed during a flight. The regulations prevent passengers carrying fluids onto planes unless they are in individual containers of no more than 100ml. Over 2,000 tonnes of liquids are confiscated at Heathrow alone each year. Although scanning technology for suspicious liquids is not yet in place, the Department for Transport said it still intended to lift the restrictions by 2013.TIME LINE | HAND LUGGAGE SECURITY9 August 2006A terrorist plot to detonate liquid explosives on board several flights to North America is disrupted when UK police officers arrest 21 suspects. 10 August 2006An overnight emergency ban on liquids in hand luggage is imposed by then Home Secretary John Reid. The ban is relaxed over subsequent weeks to allow passengers to carry fluids, but only in individual containers of 100ml or less.October 2009The EU admits that progress towards developing scanning technology capable of detecting dangerous fluids is “much slower than anticipated”. It is forced to push back its initial target of April 2010.October 2010British Airways chairman Martin Broughton launches an attack on US-led security regulations, saying: “There’s quite a number of elements of the security programme which are completely redundant and they should be sorted out.” December 2010Transport secretary Philip Hammond tells a Transport Select Committee: “In some cases more searches than are necessary are being carried out. Different approaches using technology could eliminate risk,”he said, adding: “I am not suggesting we relax the standards we require, I am suggesting more flexibility.”12 April 2011 Hammond tells airport owners the planned first phase of the lifting of liquids restrictions across the EU will no longer go ahead in the UK due to security concerns. He said he was still committed to the complete lifting of the ban by April 2013 alongside improvements to screening technology.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The stock market can be a daunting place for first-time investors. There are 100 blue-chip UK shares in the FTSE 100 and a further 250 companies in FTSE 250.On top of these, there are around 600 stocks that make up the FTSE All-Share. This index includes both the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. But that’s just a section of the market. In total, there are more than 2,000 stocks listed in London. That excludes investment funds.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…With so many options to choose from, it can be almost impossible for beginners to decide where to start. So if I had £1,000 to make my first investment in UK shares, I’d keep things simple. Rather than trying to find stocks to buy in the FTSE All-Share, I’d stick to the FTSE 100. UK shares to buy The highly successful investor and fund manager Peter Lynch suggests investors should only buy stocks in businesses they’re familiar with. As such, I’d only buy FTSE 100 stocks for my portfolio of UK shares that are household names. The first stock I’d buy is BT. I’m excited about the outlook for this telecoms giant. As the firm invests more in its operations and builds out its fibre broadband network, I reckon earnings will return to growth. This growth could support a substantial dividend from the business, although there’s no guarantee this will happen. Another household name I’d buy for my portfolio of UK shares is Royal Mail. This company has benefited from a surge in demand for its parcel delivery services over the past 12 months. The enterprise is planning to use these windfall profits to invest in its operations, which is the right choice, in my view.By reinvesting profits, the firm can build on last year’s expansion, and that may translate into earnings growth in the years ahead. The investment could also help the company compete more effectively with competitors, which are constantly nipping at its heels. This is the most significant challenge the enterprise faces right now. Another household name I’d buy for my portfolio is Just Eat Takeaway. This is one of the handful of tech shares in the FTSE 100. Like Royal Mail, the company experienced strong growth last year as the pandemic confined consumers to their homes. The group now plans to use its own windfall profits to improve awareness of its brand. However, this may not lead to growth as its deep-pocketed competitors, such as Uber Eats, are also doing the same.Diversified portfolioBy acquiring the three UK shares outlined above, I think I can build a well-diversified portfolio across different sectors. All three companies are also experiencing strong growth and have plans to increase their footprints in the months and years ahead. When coupled with the UK economic recovery, I think these twin tailwinds could lead to solid returns. However, investing in equities can be risky, so this strategy might not suit all investors. Especially considering the risks facing these particular businesses.

Waiting to pounce: Will Fraser watches as Jordan Turner-Hall of Harlequins is tackled TAGS: HighlightSaracens Hopefully Fraser can now stay available for a prolonged period of time. He certainly deserves that much following recent struggles with foot and ankle issues. With fitness on his side, the pecking order and personnel of England’s back-row might just get a re-shuffle.To read our extensive guide to the Aviva Premiership, check out the October issue of Rugby World! Find out how to download it here. Fraser then sets Saracens’ line-speed, which helps to force confusion and a loose pass from Robshaw. Instead of relaxing when the ball hits the floor though, Fraser fights through the bodies and onto Easter, who has tidied up.The flanker goes fairly high to nullify Easter’s offloading threat, affecting a strong tackle. He does not manage to roll to his feet in time for the next phase, but he is in back on the fringes as Harlequins move it infield again from close to the left touchline.This time, Billy Vunipola takes the first guard slot, pushing Fraser across one. Again, Fraser is wary of Care’s movements while scanning for runners in front of him.Kieran Longbottom brings down Jordan Turner-Hall with a low, lumberjack-style hit. Fraser helps complete the tackle, meaning he must release the Harlequins centre before attempting to play the ball.Showing an acute awareness of the laws, Fraser brings his arms out at shoulder level so there is clear daylight between him and the tackled player. It is a small movement, but a significant one that highlights his endeavour to release Turner-Hall to referee Wayne Barnes. Then, he is free to compete for the ball on the floor. Adopting a low, sturdy body position, Fraser supports his own bodyweight and braced to resist the clear-out of Kyle Sinckler.Surviving the initial impact of a Sinckler charge – far from an easy task given the tighthead weighs close to 120 kilograms – Fraser then latches onto the ball and pulls it clear.Despite the attentions of arriving Nick Easter, Fraser rolls back towards his own posts, allowing Vunipola and the outstanding George Kruis to pile over and complete the turnover. Saracens have withheld a period of sustained pressure and won the ball back. In the space of a minute, last season’s Premiership runners-up give tangible meaning to the term ‘try-scoring defence’. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS One of rugby’s weirder nuances is that sometimes it is better not to have the ball. Every so often, relentless aggression in defence, allied to only a few attacking ambushes, can lead to a total thrashing. Under the tutelage of Paul Gustard – a discipline of Andy Farrell’s ‘destroy and enjoy’ school – Saracens have become smash-and-grab masters.A 46-6 dismantling of Clermont in last season’s Heineken Cup semi-final was formidable and they were at it again at the Twickenham Stoop on Friday against Harlequins. In a 39-0 victory, they made more than twice the amount of tackles their opponents managed (123 to 53) and enjoyed just 35 per cent of possession.Of three five-pointers, one came from a Charlie Hodgson charge-down and another after Chris Ashton sped off in pursuit of a fly-hack. But do not be fooled into thinking this was some fluke. Saracens were systematic and exceptionally cohesive – rapid on kick-chase, lightning on line-speed and too brawny at the breakdown. Harlequins could not cope.Breakdown boss: Fraser enhanced his England credentials with a fine displayBoundlessly energetic, Will Fraser personified that collective mind-set and had a mammoth game. Reinforced with nine kilograms of muscle – a product of some painstaking graft during an injury-ravaged few months – he simply bullied the ruck area.Undoubtedly aided by the superior strength of his tight five, Fraser nonetheless excelled opposite Chris Robshaw. Stuart Lancaster already rates him highly and wants to add more pilfering ability to his pack. A hat-trick of turnovers, with 10 tackles and a pushover try thrown in for good measure, will certainly have enhanced Fraser’s England credentials. It is no exaggeration whatsoever to say he might be wearing a white number seven shirt at next autumn’s World Cup.This sequence of screenshots demonstrates Fraser’s involvements within one Harlequins attack, summing up his immense overall contribution as part of Saracens’ defensive effort.We start from a Harlequins line out just inside the Saracens 22. Fraser (cricled in red) stands at the tail. Eyes fixed on the ball, the 24 year-old is alert for any sniff of a fumble – he showed impressive acceleration and bravery to dive on a loose ball in a from a similar situation early in the match.As Nick Easter takes the ball and Harlequins form a driving maul, Fraser positions himself at the guard position on the open-side. Notice his head is up and he is scanning for clues as to where Danny Care will attack.This next image comes after Harlequins have made about 10 metres, coming infield as well to create chances on either flank. Rather than panic as his team are heading backwards, Fraser trusts the rest of the pack to halt the momentum and stays detached, therefore in the game. Clearly alert and identifying potential threats, he has also slipped to the other side of the maul. Openside flanker Will Fraser was at the heart of Saracens’ 39-0 defeat of Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership on Friday evening. We take a closer look at his defensive performance, in which he proved a pest at the breakdown and shone opposite Chris Robshaw.

Vipp is upscaling its classic accessories and recent kitchen and bathroom modules to build shelters. The driving ambition of the Danish company means that you can now match your kitchen and its accessories to your nature retreat. The result is a modern escape, powerful in its simplicity yet packed with exquisitely conceived details.Save this picture!Courtesy of VIPPA 55m2 steel object emerges in a rugged landscape framed by naked trees and a silent lake that mirrors in the sky frame window facade. The shelter stands as a solid rock in sharp contrast to its surroundings. Yet, with its steel frame embracing the large glass surfaces (skyframes by PanoramAH!), the rock becomes transparent and transforms into a shell projecting the landscape into the interior. The landscape is purposely framed, turning it into the predominant element of the interior space.Save this picture!Courtesy of VIPPA shelter in its original sense has connotations of basic living serving a merely functional purpose and attending to our primal need of having a roof over our head. The starting point of the Vipp shelter is going back to basics; back to nature with basic functions defining a dense, compact space yet wrapped in the Vipp DNA with a clear aesthetic coherence and use of solid materials. In this way, the shelter becomes a tool that facilitates a nature escape.Save this picture!Courtesy of VIPP“The objective was not to make a house or a mobile home. Vipp is rooted in the manufacture of industrial objects, so the term shelter is a typology that allows us to define this hybrid as a spacious, functionally generic, livable object”. – Morten Bo Jensen, chief designer in Vipp.Save this picture!Courtesy of VIPPAccording to Morten Bo Jensen, the biggest difference between this getaway compared to anything else on the market is the fact that he is not an architect. The shelter is conceived more like a product than a piece of architecture that melds seamlessly with its surrounding. We didn’t start with a piece of land on which we customized a house taking into consideration the natural surroundings. “There is plenty of amazing architecture out there, but we wanted to conceive something different; an escape in the form of an object designed down to last detail, where the only choice left to the customer, is where to put it”. Downscaling a house or a pavilion to a product has given birth to the Vipp shelter and what Vipp encourages us to do with this modern escape is to live within the frame of a product.Save this picture!Floor PlanTo where the inspiration comes from, Morten Bo Jensen explains; “Large volume objects like a plane or a ferry are a clear reference in the design, like these products the shelter is a voluminous, transportable, complex design construction.”The Vipp DNA unfolds in every details and the company’s favorite material since 1939, steel, is a recurring element cutting across the shelter frame and exterior facade, the kitchen modules and down to its accessories. As there are very few objects within the space, it was critical that their design and materiality work well with the minimal interior finishes. Favoring function over form while making sure all products are part of the same recognizable family is a recurring theme in Vipp’s product development and also a primary objective for the development of the shelter. As a result, the sensation of a contiguous space carefully thought out to the last detail is what welcomes you in the Vipp shelter.The simple steel grid structurally supports the two level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space. Within the transparent shell, nature is omnipresent yet with a physical blindage that provides shelter from the extreme winters in the north. The geometry is distributed with short distance to window frames accentuating the sensation of nature’s proximity from each angle in the shelter blurring the distinction of indoor outdoor space.Save this picture!Courtesy of VIPP“We are challenging the trend that everything we surround ourselves with has to be high-technological”, explains Morten Bo Jensen.Save this picture!ElevationVipp takes on an analog approach in creating an operational living space that works and therefore begins with function. “If you are cold you heat up the fireplace centrally positioned in the shelter for an equal distribution of heat; if you are warm you slide open the parallel windows to create natural air-condition. By locating the house in the deep deciduous woods, we are able to take advantage of the leaves as sun shading in the summer months. In the winter, when the trees lose their leaves, the building’s black exterior absorbs sunlight and with the fireplace, there is a reduction in fuel consumption”.Save this picture!Courtesy of VIPPThe perfect getaway retreat should by definition be remote, smart but spartanious and surrounded by breathtaking nature. On top of this Vipp has added the criteria of simplifying the process of creating your own getaway. When buying the Vipp shelter you buy into a design approach where choices have already been made based on a long experience within processing of solid materials with a defined aesthetic idiom. Designers and engineers have made the necessary deselections and defined the construction and material requirements. Prefabrication was an essential criteria in the construction meaning that the installation process can happen within a couple of days without an elongated process on a construction site.Save this picture!ProcessProject gallerySee allShow lessPeter Stutchbury Awarded Australian Institute of Architects’ Gold MedalArchitecture NewsNew Readings Of Space: Placing Pools Of Oil Inside A Baroque Abbey ChurchArchitecture News Share Save this picture!Courtesy of VIPP+ 40 Share CopyAbout this officeVIPPOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOtherSmall ScaleHousesDenmarkPublished on March 19, 2015Cite: “The VIPP Shelter / VIPP” 19 Mar 2015.

The project, at first conceived as a white building with great transparency for its interior, eventually evolved to the work presented here, with the intention of a more sober gesture and a greater relationship with the urban environment in which it is inserted.Save this picture!© Arménio TeixeiraSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Arménio TeixeiraLocated in a residential area close to the coast, where the single-family housing and the low-density multi-family housing are mixed, the proposal resulted from a desire to combine the life in an apartment building with the qualities of an isolated house. With only six dwellings distributed on four floors, the block is inserted in a lot with around 700 m2. Each one has its own design and interior distribution, and one of the main challenges of the project was the personalization of the spaces according to the different intentions of the clients. Having that said, we seek to provide a flexible response not only in the spatial but also in the structural point of view.Save this picture!© Arménio TeixeiraThe relation with the outside through openings of considerable dimensions gives dynamics to the elevations due to the different configuration of the apartments. The dark shades help to control the volume scale, and the mirrored glasses give the building one of its main characteristics: the ability to reflect its surroundings and to camouflage itself between the trees and the sky, which divest the notion of where the architectural object begins and ends.Save this picture!© Arménio TeixeiraProject gallerySee allShow lessCarla Juaçaba Studio Wins the AR Emerging Architecture Awards 2018Architecture NewsRevolutionary Nature: the Architecture of Hiroshi SambuichiArticlesProject locationAddress:Rua Dr. Sousa Rosa, 292, Porto, PortugalLocation to be used only as a reference.

Rasmea OdehPalestinian-American freedom fighter Rasmea Odeh made her final court appearance in Detroit on Aug. 17 to hear the sentence agreed upon earlier: removal from the U.S.Odeh had hoped to make her final public statement before the court, but in another of many violations of the rights of this political activist, Judge Gershwin Drain suppressed her reading of the speech in his courtroom.Some 150 supporters joined Odeh in Detroit for the hearing. The defense, prosecution and judge had already agreed in April to a plea agreement. Drain interrupted Odeh’s speech three separate times and even threatened to jail her for contempt of court.According to the Rasmea Defense Committee, despite its insisting “for almost four years that the immigration case brought against her in October of 2013 was nothing but a pretext to attack the Palestine support movement in the U.S., Drain tried to protect Israel and the U.S. government from Rasmea’s brutal description of their crimes against her, her family and the Palestinian people as a whole.“Forced to stop reading her statement, Rasmea ad-libbed: ‘I’m not a terrorist and my people are not terrorists. [The Israeli military] tortured me. They raped me. They destroyed my house. … I will raise my voice to say this: we have the right to struggle for our country.’“And at a post-hearing press conference, she added, ‘Really, I feel angry because the judge didn’t allow me to [tell] my story … but we will continue to struggle for our cause. We will liberate our Palestine, all [of] Palestine.’“Drain ended the proceedings by restating the agreed-upon sentence, which includes no further jail time, the revocation of Rasmea’s U.S. citizenship and deportation. He also fined her $1,000.”On Aug. 12 in Chicago, a standing-room-only crowd of over 1,200 people packed the International Union of Operating Engineers hall in solidarity with Odeh.Statement to the courtBelow is part of Odeh’s statement, which can be found in full at tinyurl.com/ycbcr2b4.On this court’s platform, I’m standing today to raise my voice on behalf of myself as a Palestinian woman and on behalf of all Palestinian people, whether under occupation, in refugee camps or scattered in exile across the world.Honorable Judge Drain: First, I would like to clarify that my following message is not directed at you personally.I am a Palestinian woman who was born into a family that had simple dreams and desires to live in peace and tranquility, far away from bombs, explosions, murder and displacement.But those dreams turned into a nightmare at the hands of the Zionist Haganah gangs, whose crimes are hard to imagine. The Zionists committed massacres, killing children and the elderly without any consideration of human values. … They turned us into strangers in our own country, and pushed us into the inhumane conditions of refugee camps inside Palestine and other Arab countries. …I personally experienced a harsh, unstable and terror-filled life in Palestine, like all my people under occupation. I was pushed off my land two separate times, my family home was destroyed twice, and my young sister was killed by the trauma of war. I was a political prisoner who was brutally tortured and raped by Israeli soldiers and prison authorities, and was almost killed more than once. …Black-Palestinian unity and solidarity is at its absolute height in the U.S., because both peoples recognize that the racist nature of the U.S. government and the racist nature of Israel are the same.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
