But according to research by Keith Prowse, the big events on the UK calendar are still pulling in the punters – with next month’s 100th anniversary of the Cheltenham Festival topping the list of occasions to which businesses are still keen to travel.Seventy-five per cent of businesses attending the annual meet (2011’s Festival kicks off on 11 March) travel more than 100 kilometres to attend – more than any other event surveyed. Of course Cheltenham’s case is no doubt helped by its relative distance from London – City firms would be hard pressed to make the trip across town to Lord’s or Twickenham quite as lengthy. In contrast the Aegon Championship tennis, held at the Queen’s Club in Baron’s Court, is the hospitality opportunity that attracts the greatest number of local businesses – 57 per cent of corporate attendees are located within ten kilometres of the historic courts. BANKERS BY CHANCESome City A.M. readers may remember the case of James Elgeti, the ambitious young Bath University student who stood outside Bank station last month with a stash of business cards and a sandwich board proclaiming: “You have the ability to kick-start my career in banking. Talk to me…”James clearly has his eye firmly on the prize, but for bank executives both old and new, it seems providence is more important than ruthless ambition when it comes to landing a spot at the top. After Lloyds’ results on Friday, outgoing chief executive Eric Daniels (right) entered the lions’ den – mingling with journalists keen to know his plans. Though Daniels steps down from his post this week, he will be employed by the bank until September – until then he’ll retain an office at 25 Gresham Street and cannot work elsewhere. But after that comes a period of indecision, with Daniels professing he’s unsure what he’ll do next. It’s likely to bring back memories of his post-college months, when the young graduate left college in the US with a management MA and little idea of what he wanted to do next. Daniels admitted that a move abroad was top of his agenda back in 1975 – and that the best opportunity happened to be with Citibank, with whom he spent five years in Panama and enjoyed stints in Argentina and Chile.It’s a sentiment that echoes a recent interview with HSBC chief Stuart Gulliver, where he confesses his first dream of being a barrister, which had to be abandoned due to financial constraints. Again, a desire to travel drove his career path – an HSBC trainee talked up the bank’s training scheme with tales of Indian adventures, so Gulliver applied, entered a trading room in Sharjah and never looked back.It just goes to show – even if you aim at nothing in particular, you might accidentally hit something very big indeed.VETS DINE FOR FUNDSIt may have begun life as a football team, but today the Stock Exchange Veterans Association is one of the City’s foremost charitable organisations. The group, headed by chairman Les Ames (above right) and vice chairman Les Polden will come together on 14 April for a dinner at The Brewery in Chiswell Street, with proceeds going to the association’s lengthy roster of beneficiaries.

ESIC bans 34 more CS:GO coaches after cheating investigation

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address As a result of the investigations to date, ESIC has issued sanctions against 37 coaches. However it was not able to ascertain with any certainty whether the teams related to the offending coaches were aware of or complicit in the exploitation of the bug. Out of a total 99,650 game demos received, initial estimates demonstrated a need to review some 25,000 demos, of which ESIC has reviewed approximately 20%. It states, however, that those demos already reviewed likely comprised the most substantial cases of abuse. ESIC bans 34 more CS:GO coaches after cheating investigation Any coach identified who wishes to contest his guilt may now appeal the decisions by writing to the chairman of ESIC’s independent disciplinary panel. The bug allowed coaches to move freely around in-game maps during matches, meaning they could access information on the opposing team’s whereabouts, feeding information back to their teams in order to give them an unfair advantage. While ESIC originally estimated the investigation would last for around 8 months, turnaround has been faster than expected and it claims the investigation will now be completed by the end of October, at which point the commission will issue an additional report, subject to any additional complications which may arise during the investigative process. Topics: Esports esports regulation In order to carry out the investigation, ESIC received full access to esports portals HLTV and ESEA’s databases of match demos, allowing them to scan in excess of 96,500 demos. After finding three coaches guilty of exploiting the bug on 3 September, the investigation has, to date, brought sanctions against a further 34 coaches, who will now face professional bans of varying lengths between some 4 months and 3 years. ESIC claims that only 0.1% of the total 99,650 demos received for review have returned a positive indication of spectator bug abuse. During the investigation, ESIC identified evidence that the bug had previously been referred to admins in non-ESIC member tournaments as far back as 2017, but that it is not aware of how these reports were treated by non-members. 28th September 2020 | By Aaron Noy The bans will prevent the coaches from being able to communicate with their teams, from 15 minutes prior to official match starts up until the end of matches, as well as being present around their teams during the same period, being on the game server during official matches, being on the official match channel on the Discord server, being part of the official map veto process or being in communication with their teams during this process. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Esports The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) has published the outcome of the first part of its investigation, launched on 4 September, into the historical exploitation of the so-called ‘spectator bug’ used by some Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) coaches.last_img read more

Peter Stephens | Tuesday, 1st December, 2020 Investing money in an ISA in 2021 could be a sound means of taking advantage of a likely long-term stock market recovery. However, risks continue to face many UK shares at the present time. Therefore, it may take a number of years for the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 to return to their pre-coronavirus levels.As such, focusing on financially-sound businesses with sound long-term strategies could be the best means of generating high returns in 2021 and beyond.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…Investing in an ISA for a stock market recoveryThe uncertain economic outlook means that ISAs containing companies with solid financial positions may be able to benefit the most from a long-term stock market recovery. After all, there are a number of risks that currently face a wide range of industries. They include Brexit and coronavirus. Both of them are currently ongoing and are likely to have some impact on investor sentiment in the first part of 2021. And possibly over a longer timeframe.As such, investing money in businesses with low debt levels, large interest coverage ratios and a track record of outperforming sector peers during challenging periods for the industry could be a shrewd move. Such companies may stand a better chance of surviving short-term risks in 2021. They may, therefore, be able to enjoy stronger growth within an ISA in a likely long-term stock market recovery.Sound growth strategies for 2021 and beyondAs well as buying financially-sound businesses in an ISA in 2021, companies with solid growth strategies may outperform their peers in a sustained stock market recovery. For example, those businesses that are currently seeking to adapt to likely long-term changes in consumer tastes caused by the coronavirus pandemic may be in a strong position to improve upon their competitive advantages. This may translate into higher profitability as the world economy returns to strong GDP growth in the coming years.Furthermore, companies that have a track record of adapting to changing market conditions may be attractive to ISA investors in 2021. They may be able to overcome potential threats over the coming months that could have a negative impact on rivals who are less able to adjust their business models in a short space of time.The likelihood of a stock market rallyOf course, a stock market recovery may fail to materialise in the coming months, or indeed during the course of 2021. As mentioned, threats facing the world economy could weigh on share prices and cause ISA valuations to come under pressure.However, through buying companies with solid finances and sound growth strategies, an investor may be able to build an ISA that has the potential to benefit from a likely stock market rise over the coming years. In doing so, they could improve their long-term financial prospects.

Armenia Building is located in Palermo Soho, a neighborhood in the city of Buenos Aires. Due to the gentrification process occurred during the last decade, Palermo Soho was renewed and became a gastronomic, cultural, commercial and touristic hotspot, which has raised real estate prices in the area.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe building is situated on Armenia Street, an average width road lined with aged trees.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenIn order to profit from the area’s potential, an investment group commissioned an apartment building with a row of stores on the ground floor. The building should be composed of a varied set of apartments. While the commissioners intended most of them to be lofts that could be temporarily rent out to tourists, the more spacious unities (one, two, and three-bedroom apartments) would be sold as permanent residencies. It was requested the project should include common areas, green spaces, a solarium, and should also be endowed with water presence. With respect to materiality, the clients already knew the Studio’s career regarding the esthetics of its works and its experience in the use of exposed concrete. They considered it fit for the project not just for esthetics reasons, but also because it requires minimum maintenance.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe project synthesis developed a building organized in two compact blocks linked by a patio in-between that would function as the heart of the design. The blocks’ height was determined by the code’s zoning: ground floor and four other floors. According to the code’s requirements, the different floors on the front block are organized in steps ascending inwards. This structure is mirrored by the block in the rear so that better insolation, air and views may be achieved, falling backwards on the upper floors and generating an opening towards the central patio.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe Studio’s intention was to avoid this space’s confinement, so the ground free floor plan connects the street area, the central patio and the backyard. Receded from the building’s facade, the double-height stores set in the front expand the sidewalk space. Among the stores’ interstices is located the entrance to the building, with no closing physical barrier other than a fence that allows the passing of air into the rest of the condominium. The air going through the whole floor plan softens the transition between the public and private spaces.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenRegarding the floor plan’s organization, both blocks area arranged over an orthogonal grid. This grid is bilaterally set on both sides of an axis that cuts through the trapezoid drawn by the site. Each block has its own circulatory nucleus and both lie on this same axis.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenAlong with the site’s geometry, the diverse typology requested by our customers and the intention to achieve well lit and aired homes endowed with good views were the project’s main challenge.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenRegarding the facade, a brise-soleil system composed of vertical partitions and horizontal eaves was designed to function as a sun control artifact that would also shelter the apartments from the view from the street.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenApart from the central patio, for which natural forestation was designed, the condominium has a common use solarium and reflecting pool on the second level that lean over the patio.Save this picture!1st Floor PlanThe central patio has semi covered spaces that may be used as parking slots, but also there is a garage and private storerooms on the underground floor that can be accessed through a car elevator.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenWhen the construction was already well advanced, the commissioner acquired the lot next to the building site to incorporate it into the project and the original design needed to be adapted. New stores were included on the front and the new apartments (which were now thirty four) were integrated into the existing structure, making use of the circulatory nucleuses developed for the original project. The brise-soleil system was adapted so that it would serve as an integrating element with the new building.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe exposed concrete is present all over the building shell, as well as in the common areas, the circulatory nucleuses, the slab bases and both the indoor and outdoor floors, made of smooth concrete. In contraposition, inner partitions are plastered brick walls painted in white. While the apartments’ framing is made of dark bonze anodized aluminum, black steel was selected for the front framings, the internal structure supporting the stores’ mezzanines, and the rest of the forges.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenProject gallerySee allShow lessRichard Meier’s Douglas House Added to National Register of Historic PlacesArchitecture NewsCall for Applications: FUTURE+ Aformal AcademyCall for SubmissionsProject locationAddress:Palermo, Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, ArgentinaLocation to be used only as a reference.
