Morar also wants the FSB to be forced to take all necessary steps to remove the obstacles to her return to Russia.The lawyer, Yuri Kostanov, filed the petition on 14 February. A hearing is to be held on 17 March. He told the privately-owned Interfax news agency that the FSB broke the law in several ways. “When you prepare to expel someone, an entire series of decisions, in particular, decisions concerning a permanent employment, have to be taken and the person has to be informed, but Natalia Morar was given no notification of this kind,” he said.Furthermore, no grounds were given for the deportation, Kostanov said. The authorities just cited article 27 of a 1996 law concerning movements in and out of Russia, which says foreigners can be denied entry if they pose a threat to security or public health.Morar was denied entry at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on 16 December, when she returned with a group of journalists from a press trip to Israel. After being told by FSB officials that she was “undesirable” and was not authorised to reenter Russia, she was put a flight to Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, where she is from.Read previous article about Natalia Morar RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” News BelarusEurope – Central Asia last_img read more

Parcelforce to reduce its HR team

first_img Previous Article Next Article Parcelforce’s HR team is to be reduced by more than two-thirds as part ofthe company’s aim to save £370m a year. The company, which is losing £15m a month, is reducing the 34-strong headoffice HR team to 11 in a bid to make the delivery service profitable by 2005. The move is part of Parcelforce’s restructuring, which includessub-contracting out a quarter of its delivery routes, scrapping three-daydeliveries, halving the number of sorting depots and reducing staff numbers by5,000 to 6,700. The move includes the merging of employee and industrial relationsdepartment. The training and resourcing department will also merge, with theresponsibility for delivery of training moving to regional HR teams, and thehealth and safety department will be reduced. Jon Millidge, personnel director at Parcelforce, said the move aims to makeHR more strategic. “The business is halving in size so there is no need for the samenumber of HR people. The emphasis will change to the (HR) team concentrating onpolicy and how it is deployed but not actually delivering it.” Parcelforce’s restructuring starts in July, and the HR changes should becompleted next March. Millidge said: “There was shock among the HR staff when the changeswhere announced. But all the HR staff are professional people who can easilyfind jobs elsewhere. Being involved in a HR project of reducing a business ofthis size will be good experience for HR professionals.” Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos.

China’s economy bounces back from pandemic contraction

first_img“No matter how much stimulus and fiscal sugar you try to entice consumers with, they will not leave their apartment and go on a spending spree until they feel confident the landscape is virus-free,” said AxiCorp strategist Stephen Innes.The retail sector occupies an increasingly crucial role in China’s economy as leaders look to consumers, rather than trade and investment, to drive growth.A domestic consumption pick-up is especially needed as external demand weakens, but Innes noted it is easier to normalise supply than demand.Louis Kuijs of Oxford Economics said household consumption remains the “weakest link” among indicators, although China’s economic upturn is expected to continue in the second half of 2020.’Still under pressure’Economists warn, however, that official Chinese figures should be taken with a grain of salt, with longstanding suspicions they are massaged upward for political reasons by a ruling Communist Party that bases its legitimacy on delivering continued prosperity.”Is it too good to be true?” ING chief economist for Greater China Iris Pang asked, telling AFP that more data was needed.She also pointed to risks down the road including trade and tech tensions with other major economies, particularly the United States.Economists also warn of uncertainty owing to an uneven recovery — growth in infrastructure investment has rebounded, but private fixed-asset investment and retail sales remained weak.As if mindful of the concerns, Xi pledged that “China will foster new opportunities and create new prospects for Chinese and foreign enterprises”, and will implement growth-oriented policies, his letter said, according to Xinhua.The coronavirus, which first emerged in the city of Wuhan late last year, has since shut businesses and destroyed millions of jobs globally, likely tipping the world economy into recession.Growth beat the 1.3 percent gain tipped in an AFP poll of analysts but remains among China’s lowest quarterly expansion rates on record.The economy contracted 1.6 percent on-year in the first six months, the NBS said, and urban unemployment dipped to 5.7 percent in June from 5.9 percent a month earlier.Unemployment is a closely watched marker, with nearly nine million graduates expected to enter an uncertain labour market this year and analysts saying actual joblessness is likely higher.Industrial production grew 4.8 percent in June, in line with expectations and up from 4.4 percent in May.NBS spokeswoman Liu Aihua said China’s economy was staging a “gradual recovery”.But it is “still under pressure” as the pandemic ravages many of China’s key trading partners.China is expected to be the only major economy to see growth in 2020, being the first hit by the virus and to bounce back.Topics : China’s economy returned to growth in the second quarter following a coronavirus contraction, with President Xi Jinping promising continued expansion ahead and urging foreign companies to be a part of it.The forecast-beating figures released Thursday follow a string of data showing the world’s number two economy slowly emerging from the pandemic, and should provide hope to other governments looking to recover from a crisis that has likely caused a global recession.Gross domestic product expanded 3.2 percent in April-June, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said, smashing expectations and a massive improvement on the 6.8 percent contraction in the first quarter. In a letter to members of the Global CEO Council, Xi said “the fundamentals of China’s long-term economic growth have not changed and will not change”, according to state media.He reiterated repeated pledges to continue opening up an economy that many foreign businesses say offers unfair advantages to Chinese companies, and added that it was “the right choice to stay rooted in China”.However, in a sign that full recovery could take time, retail sales – a key indication of consumer sentiment – fell short of forecasts, shrinking 1.8 percent on-year in June, suggesting continued reticence about going out to spend even as the virus appears largely under control in China.The data also failed to lift Asian markets, led by Shanghai, which tanked 4.5 percent having rallied around 15 percent this month.last_img read more

Seniors create personalized protein supplement company

first_imgUSC seniors Ryan Roddy (left) and Harrison Valner (right) launched their company Kyoku after recognizing he need for protein supplements that emphasize health benefits.(Photo courtesy of Kyoku) After noticing that many protein supplements did not emphasize health benefits, two USC seniors wanted to create a product of their own. Harrison Valner and Ryan Roddy launched Kyoku, a workout supplement company which helps users looking to maintain energy levels.  Sean Stevens, a senior majoring in business administration, is a customer of Kyoku and has known Roddy since freshman year. For students who are interested in starting their own business, Roddy recommends that they have three important elements. They created their product to make sure that it would fit people with a wide variety of fitness goals. In an effort to expand their product’s concept, the duo sought out different grants for projects through the University.  “Even if you have a great product, the market opportunity is there, and the team is awesome, [there are] going to be moments in the journey that are just too hard for you to keep on going on if money is your biggest motivator,” Roddy said. “There just needs to be something else that gets you up and motivated out of that, beyond external motivators.” “I’ve seen when it was just a flowering idea to kind of now their more rigorous day-to-day operations,” Stevens said. “I was definitely someone that saw that as something that they could change [protein supplements as we know it.] … I originally was using dairy-based protein powder and it would make my stomach upset and cause more breakouts with my acne. So Ryan explained the science behind and the pros and cons of the plant-based post-workout shake. And I was [like], ‘Yeah, you guys should do it!’” Valner, a senior in the Iovine and Young Academy, and Roddy, a senior majoring in business administration, met through Lavalab, a student-run incubator in the Marshall School of Business. They immediately became best friends and began carpooling to the gym they both frequented off campus. Realizing they both had a passion for fitness, they decided to create a business around it. Once they received the grant, the pair spent their summer developing Kyoku and expanding their business model. Kyoku was able to raise nearly $100,000 after gathering funds from friends and family.  One of the company’s main investors is Science Inc., a consumer products-focused venture capital fund based in Santa Monica that focuses on pre-product companies. They were able to raise an additional $1.5 million with Science Inc. to be used for production and marketing. “I had gotten … a reminder, I think it was that afternoon, it was like ‘Just a reminder, applications are due at 11:59 p.m.’ and I remember Ryan and I sat down for literally four hours straight and put together a business plan, built a deck and really built the entire idea of the company,” Valner said.center_img Valner and Roddy found that the Iovine and Young Academy provided grants for select student projects. However, the application was due the same night they discovered the opportunity. “A lot of people in the venture capital community, they really look for the product, the market and the team,” Roddy said. “Those are the three things that really are the determinant as to whether or not they’ll invest in a product or company. So I think it’s important to hit those three things in some fashion.”  The company also emphasizes sustainable sourcing and uses sustainable packaging materials and ingredients. According to Kyoku’s website, the plant-based ingredients the company uses produce fewer greenhouse gases and all packaging is recyclable. “We knew if we just created another protein powder or supplement or superfood shake that we would not be able to compete out there,” Valner said. “We had to do something that stood out that was different and unique.”   Valner believes that what makes Kyoku different from other supplement companies is that they pride themselves in being comprehensive and detailed. “If you’re going to the market, you’re buying a cup of protein, there’s just gonna be protein in that, whereas for us, our formulas range from 40-60% protein and 40-60% organic whole foods [such as] kale, spinach, beets, quinoa,” Valner said. “There are 25 different ingredients we work with.” The duo said that having those three things, along with passion and a mission, will help people find success in their business.  “We soft-launched the business in early July and have spent the time since then in beta. We’re on track to hard-launch the business in early 2020,” Roddy said. “I think just getting ourselves to market and positioning our company sort of in a very fundamental way was the most pivotal thing to get the brand to market and set us up for success in the future.” Kyoku works with dieticians and doctors to create personalized active nutrition plans for customers, and delivers shake supplements in single-serve packets monthly.last_img read more

There’s Rot in the Roof

first_imgKramer doesn’t see how he can increase the thickness of the low-slope portion of the roof without affecting the steeper parts of the roof. His proposed fix is to pull off the 1×4 skip sheathing, add a 1/2-inch layer of OSB with a peel-and-stick membrane, then a layer of 30-pound felt, and metal roofing. The 5,000 square feet of 12-in-12 roofing will not be affected.Inside, he’s improved the bathroom fan capacity and covered the tongue-and-groove ceiling with drywall.“In the long run, it is possible that I am going to have to have the entire roof replaced, which will allow adding the R-10 or greater rigid foam and completing the other details, at a very large cost,” he says. “For an interim solution on this small section of roof, what improvement to my plan does anyone have?”That’s the background for this Q&A Spotlight. It’s worse than I thoughtAs is often the case when repairing an older house, the damage Kramer found in his initial assessment was just the beginning. What at first looked like a localized problem in the area of the skylight goes much deeper than that.When workers installed the skylight, “they literally cut a hole in the entire roof structure, added no framing, screwed the deck-mounted skylight on, and covered it with trim,” Kramer writes. “No insulation at the cut, and this was directly above the bathtub/shower…”A few hours later, after he has removed more roofing, Kramer adds this: “The damage is throughout the roof, as you can see in the photo [see Image #2, below]. Not sure what the fix is, but for now I’m just going to remove all the sheathing remnants and ponder if there is a way to move the transitions and valleys up enough to add the rigid foam at R-10. Any suggestions are appreciated.”His plan now seems to be to remove the Styrofoam and replace it with 1 inch of closed-cell foam, sealing the edges with spray foam, then seal all joints with tape. That would be followed by a 5/8-inch OSB roof deck, 30-pound felt, and standing-seam metal roofing. RELATED ARTICLES More evidence comes to lightAs Kramer dives further into the project, he posts a series of photos that suggest asphalt felt woven into the courses of shingles had something to do with the rot that developed later.“Your latest photos provide another puzzle piece,” Holladay says “Now we know the condensing surface for the escaping moisture. The original roofer installed strips of #15 asphalt felt, interwoven with the cedar shingles. It looks like a strip of asphalt felt was applied to the upper half of each course of shingles, as the shingles were installed. In winter, this asphalt felt was cold. This upper layer of asphalt felt was the condensing surface for the escaping moisture.“The moisture was piggybacking on the exfiltrating interior air that was escaping through cracks in the cut-and-cobble foam, and that moisture condensed on the underside of the roofing felt,” Holladay continues. “The moisture was trapped between the asphalt felt and the skip sheathing. The result: sheathing rot.”The problem would be more pronounced on boards higher on the roof because the warm, moisture-laden air would have a tendency to rise.Kramer does some exploratory digging into the steeper sections of roof and concludes it will have to be replaced at some point. So he plans a complete repair for the lower section of roof so it will not have to be reworked later. Once the rafter bays have been insulated, he plans to cover the entire section with 3-inch-thick rigid insulation, taped at the seams, before adding 1/2-inch plywood sheathing and his roof covering. (See image #3 below.)“This means I’ll cut into the two adjoining 12/12 pitches to raise the valley flashing,” he says. “I experimented with this and it wasn’t as bad as I thought.” Not enough room for all that insulationDorsett may have a point, Kramer replies, but there doesn’t seem to be a way of adding 3 inches of rigid insulation to this small roof area without diving into the adjoining roof sections. And that is not something he’s prepared to do.“I can see that the right way would be to add the rigid foam over the top, but I’m trying to find a reasonably efficient compromise which will stop the moisture problems in the future, even if not meeting full R-value,” Kramer says. “The rest of the home has about 5,000 to 6,000 square feet of this roof construction. That’s going to be my next challenge.”His latest, and best plan so far, is to remove the rigid foam from between the rafters and to spray 1 inch of closed-cell foam directly on top of the 15-pound felt separating the roof cavity from his tongue-and-groove ceiling boards.“Then I will re-install the foil-faced Thermax and tape the top surface across the rafters,” Kramer adds. “Essentially, I’m going to be treating the tongue-and-groove as the roof deck, and installing all of my insulation above that. Then I’ll install the metal roof over 30-pound felt. That will give me R-27, (in the cavity, anyways…). I’ll also have to be sure to seal every penetration (drain vent, bathroom fan, skylight).“This seems like it will address the issues for this small space,” he adds. “I’m proceeding with the belief that this small section will be sub-optimal in energy efficiency, but fully durable from a moisture standpoint. “ Cut-and-cobble is ‘risky’The photos tell GBA senior editor Martin Holladay that moisture has probably been accumulating in the roof for years, a result of various air leaks between the framing and the rigid foam insulation that has been cut to fit in the cavities. “The exfiltrating air,” he says, “carries moisture, and the moisture probably condensed on the underside of the cold asphalt felt strips that were interwoven with the cedar shingles.”The bottom line is this: a cut-and-cobble approach to insulation is risky.“Fixing the open section with more cut-and-cobble is only a temporary solution, since you’ll probably end up with more air leaks as the rafters expand and contract due to changes in humidity and temperature,” Holladay writes. “Eventually, you’ll probably need to fix this problem on your entire roof. To really fix this issue, you’ll need to strip all of the roofing off, install new OSB or plywood roof sheathing, some type of air barrier, and an adequate thickness of continuous rigid foam above the roof sheathing.”A better approach now, he adds, would be to strip off all of the rigid foam from above to expose the ceiling boards, and fill the cavities with closed-cell spray foam.center_img Ordinarily, skip sheathing would be fineMost houses have solid roof decks — which these days are made of plywood or OSB, but in the past consisted of sawn boards. The person who roofed Kramer’s house used skip sheathing, 1×4 boards attached to rafters so there’s a gap in between each board. That was a common technique when roofs were finished with wood shingles, because the skip sheathing allowed the shingles to dry out better than solid sheathing did.The technique typically allows any accumulating moisture to escape, Dana Dorsett says.“Cedar shingle roofs on skip sheathing are inherently ventilated to the exterior,” he says, “and in most climates air leaks from the interior would just leak without leaving enough moisture in the skip sheathing to be a problem, but on the foggy-dew western foothills of the Cascades it’s still not always adequate.”It appears from the photos Kramer has provided that the only issues with the skip sheathing appear to be around the roof vent (probably because it wasn’t sealed adequately) and at the bottom edge of the roof over the eaves, “which implies that the inherent venting was ‘working mostly,’ ” he adds.“The damage at the overhang was likely due to a combination of wind-driven leakage of the shingles combined with slower drying due to the colder temperature of the roof at the eaves where it isn’t being heated from below, and scant winter/spring sun to warm it from above,” Dorsett says.Kramer will have to do better than R-10 in insulation above a new roof deck if he wants to meet the 2015 International Residential Code minimum, Dorsett says. “But R-15 above the roof deck would meet code on a U-factor basis (not on an R-value basis) and would give you reasonable dew point margin,” he says. “Using 3 inches of reclaimed roofing polyiso would be the cheapest (and greenest) way to get there.” Our expert’s opinionGBA technical director Peter Yost added these thoughts:Chuck Kramer has gotten much more than he bargained for with his roof and with us! He and I and the GBA online professional volunteer crew have been going full tilt on this one.I have worked on a number of projects with 2×6 tongue-and-groove ceilings and/or roof decks (here’s one example).They work great as finish and structure but they leak air like a sieve. And because the t&g deck extends through and beyond the gable and eaves to make great overhangs, they leak everywhere: through the field of the ceiling, at penetrations and to the outdoors directly at eaves and gables. The pattern of moisture damage often follows these pathways, as well as up into peaks due to stack effect and moist air being more buoyant than dry air (given the same temperature).Here is some interesting additional information about this home:1. The current occupant moisture load is apparently quite modest: just two occupants, few plants, dryer properly vented to outdoors, no wood stored inside conditioned space, no open combustion (e.g. propane cook stove or oven) etc.2. The previous occupancy moisture load is likely to have been quite high. Evidence of moisture upon move-in by current occupants includes: staining streaks (watermarks) on window frames, ceilings, and walls; and a wood stove with a big, open pot of water on top; and poor or no exhaust venting in bathrooms.3. Although a blower door test has been conducted on the home, Kramer never got the results. He does, however, remember quite a bit of the “flow” coming from upstairs.4. Much of the moisture damage — rot and insect tunneling — appears to be historical rather than current or recent.So, Chuck Kramer is and needs to continue to address two connected issues: household moisture loads and roof air leakage. He needs to manage air leakage at all of the pathways enumerated above, and assess the continuity of his air barrier with a blower door aided by smoke stick and/or IR imaging. He needs to monitor indoor relative humidity, especially during the winter, with a reasonable monitoring device (see the link to “Measuring (and Understanding) Humidity” in the sidebar above) and identify and manage sources of household moisture should levels exceed 35% to 40%.By the way, it would be a good idea to check the original Q&A post because Kramer has built a great photo series there. Cut-and-Cobble InsulationHow to Build an Insulated Cathedral CeilingAll About Attic VentingHow to Install Rigid Foam on Top of Roof SheathingCombining Exterior Rigid Foam With Fluffy Insulation GBA Details: Exterior Roof Insulation RetrofitMeasuring (and Understanding) Humidity Chuck Kramer’s home in Enumclaw, Washington, was built in the 1980s with unvented cathedral ceilings, insulated with cut-and-cobble rigid foam insulation and roofed with cedar shakes. A small section of the roof is showing signs of water damage, and now Kramer is trying to find a way of repairing the problem area without tearing into the rest of the roof.As Kramer explains in a Q&A post at Green Building Advisor, the trouble seems to be in an area measuring about 150 square feet. This part of the roof, with a slope of 4-in-12, is surrounded by two other roof areas with a 12-in-12 pitch.From inside to outside, the roof assembly consists of 2×6 tongue-and-groove boards, 15-pound asphalt felt, 2×6 rafters, 1×4 skip sheathing, and cedar shakes interwoven with strips of 15-pound asphalt felt. The rafter cavities are insulated with two 2-inch-thick layers of foil-faced polyisocyanurate foam insulation and 1 inch of Styrofoam beadboard.“Most of the roof is 12/12 pitch,” he writes. “A small section above two bathrooms is 4/12, with two 12/12 pitches joining two sides with valleys. In that section, a skylight was cut in after initial construction, maybe in the late ’80s… The 1x4s [the skip sheathing] and a small part of the tops of the rafters are damaged by rot, particularly badly around the skylight.”last_img read more

Build Your Own Burning Platform

first_imgIt isn’t easy to change. Our brain tends to shut down the desire to improve ourselves and our situation as soon as we are comfortable. As long as we don’t experience too much pain, we don’t change. Even if we know we are capable of more, if we could gain pleasure, we still don’t take action.Here’s your motivation (not that you need to be motivated or inspired).Building Your OwnMost of the reason we don’t take the actions we need to to take is because we are afraid.We fear that we will fail and lose the comfort of our identity. We fear being mocked, criticized, or ostracized and lose our connection to the herd. As much as we love novelty, most of us love the warm comfort of the status quo even more. We’re afraid to lose it. But there are outcomes you should fear more than this little list of horribles.You should fear not living up to your full potential. You should fear leaving this place before you realize your dreams. Or before you even attempt them.You should fear failing the people who count on you. You should fear not investing as much as you can in those relationships that are most precious to you.You should fear not making the contribution you know that you can—and should—make. You should fear walking away the fight that had your name all over it. You should fear lying down.You should fear living a lie, living a life of mediocrity, or living someone else’s purpose instead of your own.This is the list of horribles you should fear. This is your burning platform.Light the MatchEach day when your alarm goes off, the fears above are what should motivate you.
