James was officially listed as out with a sore right groin in a 113-97 loss to Houston.NBA Results LIVE : T.J Warren’s heroics gave Pacers victory over LakersA week after scoring a career-high 53 points in the restart opener, Warren hit a floater for a 109-108 lead followed by a jumper and a 3-pointer for a six-point edge with 10 seconds to go.Warren is averaging 34.8 points in five bubble games, a point better than Houston star James Harden. The Pacers are 4-1 in the restart, a half-game ahead of Philadelphia for the fifth seed and a half-game behind No. 4 seed Miami in the East. The Pacers play the Heat on Monday.“I just feel like I’m in a groove offensively, defensively,” Warren said. “I feel like as a team we’re grooving right now. We’ve just got to keep it up.”Anthony Davis, held to eight points on 3-of-14 shooting, scored inside to give the Lakers their last lead before Warren took over and dropped LA to 2-4 in the restart.It was the first time this season the Lakers have lost when James scored at least 30 points. The 20 straight wins tied Jerry West (1963-64) for the longest in NBA history, according to ESPN.“It is on me,” Davis said after being held to single digits for the fourth time this season. “I had some good looks tonight, just missed shots around the rim, the layup that I missed, open 3s missed, open mid-range shot. Shot just not going in.”Warren scored 18 in the first quarter, one off the franchise record for the first that he tied in a bubble-opening win over Philadelphia a week ago, before getting held without a shot in the second quarter.The sixth-year guard acquired in an offseason trade with Phoenix heated up again in the fourth with 12 points, hitting five of six shots and finishing 15 of 22. Warren was 5 of 8 from long range.“Hopefully he stays hot for us because we need it,” Victor Oladipo said, holding up a hand with fingers crossed.Malcom Brogdon scored 24 points for Indiana, and Oladipo added 22.Quinn Cook scored 21 for the Lakers, going 5 for 9 from 3-point range but missing one that would have pulled LA even in the final minute.Other NBA Results for games played on SaturdayNuggets beat Utah Jazz in Overtime 134-132Phoenix Suns beat Heat 119-112Clippers beat Trail Blazers 122-117Pacers beat LA Lakers 116-111 Facebook Twitter By Kunal Dhyani – August 9, 2020 TAGSLeBron JamesNBA Live Sony SportsNBA Live Streaming Sony LIVNBA Results LIVEPacers beat Lakers highlights SHARE T.J Warren is leading a litany of All-Stars in scoring inside the NBA bubble, and his Indiana Pacers are the only Eastern Conference team with four wins. They got there with a victory over LeBron James and the Lakers.Warren scored 39 points, including seven straight to put Indiana ahead in the final two minutes, and the Pacers beat Los Angeles 116-111 on Saturday.

By stretching, extending and raising the main box we managed to hide three floors in it, and create a Pavilion looking house. The box was softened with a thin frame of floating concrete floor and a very thin roof rack on top joined together by diagonal side walls.Save this picture!© Amit GeronSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Amit GeronThe fourth floor was laid on the main box in the form of a complete white cube, with no visible windows or openings. It’s lack of ornaments and functional elements contribute to concealing its presence. A vertical slit in the cube creates an inner patio which brings in air and light and is the element which breaks the mass of the cube and softened its geometry.Save this picture!© Amit GeronIron louvres were laid along the western facade creating an aisle between them and the exterior walls, giving lightness and airiness to the house. As the western sun enters the aisle, different patterns of shades appear on the walls. The Pavilion stands wrapped in a Dichondra carpet.

What the Troika did to Cyprus: Robbing depositors & calling it a ‘rescue’

first_imgProtest in Cyprus.Cyprus is a small island country in the eastern Mediterranean Sea with an economy valued at less than 1 percent of Europe’s total. Yet what has just happened to Cyprus has dire implications for people wherever bankers rule the roost — which is the entire capitalist world.The big imperialist banks of Europe have forced on Cyprus a plan that, according to the online blog of a British business magazine, would push the country into a “harsh recession” in which the gross domestic product “will shrink by about 10 percent before any hope of recovery.” (The Economist, March 25)Yet this plan is being hailed as a $13 billion “rescue” and “bailout” of Cyprus’s banking system by the Troika: the European Commission, International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank.Recent entrants to the European Union, like the Republic of Cyprus — consisting of the southern (Greek) half of the island — have found that being in the EU does not reap the advantages that a common European currency promised. They lost what financial independence they might have had to the Troika — the financial instruments of the enormously wealthy imperialist bankers of Europe.Social explosion follows Troika ‘rescue’The people in the Republic of Cyprus woke up to this fact with a shock on March 16 when the newly elected right-wing president, Nicos Anastasiades, announced he had struck a deal with the Troika that would “rescue” the Cypriot banking system, which was supposedly on the verge of bankruptcy.He would let these European bankers reach into the people’s savings accounts and grab almost 7 percent of the money from every insured deposit, which included all deposits up to 100,000 euros — about $130,000. Larger, uninsured accounts would be taxed even more — almost 10 percent.The people of Cyprus had not been consulted about any of this.Nor had the government of Russia, even though Cyprus had become a major offshore banking center for rich Russians. These are the Russians who grabbed up state property for a song after the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was broken up and capitalism was restored there in the early 1990s. At that time, these robbers were welcomed into the “international community” — meaning the capitalist world — and toasted as great entrepreneurs by the self-styled democratic bourgeoisie of the West.But increasingly those who once hailed these Russians’ ingenuity in sucking the wealth out of formerly state-owned enterprises now see them as competitors, especially as the struggle for markets intensifies. So they don’t mind throwing the Russian depositors under the bus if that will clinch the Cyprus deal.What followed the Cypriot president’s announcement was a social explosion. Unable to draw much money from their savings to pay for rent, food and other necessities because the government had ordered all banks closed, the people filled the streets in protest. The result was that the Cypriot Parliament voted to reject the deal. Under the pressure of the people, they refused to let the big bankers arrogantly come in and just take what they wanted from personal bank accounts.But this wasn’t the end of the matter. The bankers figured out a new way to get their $13 billion — and to set a precedent for other countries that might think of resisting their diktats. On March 25, they came up with a new plan, again agreed to by flunky President Anastasiades. This time, the plan wouldn’t need parliamentary approval, they said.Rather than impose a tax on all deposits, they would break up one of the larger Cypriot banks, called Laiki, which handles many of the offshore accounts. The large depositors, mostly Russians, could expect to lose about 35 percent of their funds, which would in effect be confiscated by the Troika.Imperialist banks plunder the worldThe capitalist world is not a collection of equals. In some countries, the capitalists have grown rich and powerful through centuries of industrial development made possible by exploiting the workers at home and super-exploiting territories abroad that they conquered and colonized.The immense wealth of the ruling class in these imperialist countries is concentrated in the banking system. The size and populations of these countries are not the decisive factor. While the United States, Britain, Germany and France have dominated the global banking system, smaller countries like Belgium and the Netherlands also grew rich through colonial pillage and are part of the imperialist club.The imperialist banks control the credit ratings of companies and entire countries. The poorer a country is, the more it needs loans to stay competitive, the higher the rate of interest that the imperialist banks charge.The present world capitalist economic crisis, which began in the U.S. in 2008, particularly hit hard those countries caught in the net of the powerful imperialist banks.Europe as a whole is now in the grip of a second-dip recession, with intractable unemployment. When people aren’t working, they can’t buy. Without customers, businesses fold left and right, and loans go into default, leaving many local banks, particularly in poorer countries, in a precarious position.If the bankers can succeed in putting over this unprecedented expropriation of bank deposits in Cyprus, there can be no doubt that they will take it on the road, squeezing every penny out of other countries in order to keep the imperialist banks stuffed with cash, even as the capitalist crisis deepens.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Full solidarity with the rebellion in Charlotte!

first_imgUPDATED SEPT. 23Police and National Guard Out of Charlotte and Black & Brown communities! Full amnesty for all arrestees! Smash racist police terror and the capitalist system into the ground! Sept. 23 — The revolutionary socialist Workers World Party presidential campaign of Monica Moorehead and Lamont Lilly expresses our full and complete solidarity with the uprising that broke out Sept. 20 in Charlotte, N.C. — the Wall Street of the South.The heroic Black and Brown youth on the front lines of this tremendous and growing rebellion are inaugurating a new period of heightened struggle against the police war on Black and Brown people and the intolerable conditions imposed on oppressed communities in the belly of the beast. To rebel is justified!At the time of this writing the rebellion is entering its fourth day after the city has been rocked by thousands taking to the streets, shutting down highways and expressing the righteous anger in response to the police murder of Keith Lamont Scott.The uprising in Charlotte comes days after the police execution of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, Okla., the tremendous strike against slave labor by prisoners on the 45th anniversary of the Attica rebellion on Sept. 9, three years after the police murder of Jonathan Ferrell by Charlotte cops, and on the heels of rebellions in Milwaukee, Baltimore, Ferguson, and elsewhere.We urge the rest of the movement to do whatever possible to come to the defense of the uprising in Charlotte in this critical hour as the state is carrying out a full-scale mobilization of all its repressive forces against the rebellion.During both nights of protest, the state has violently repressed the demonstrators by using chemical weapons, flash bang grenades, rubber bullets and mass arrests in an attempt to shut down the Black community that is in open revolt. The governor of North Carolina has declared a state of emergency in the city and has called in the National Guard and State Highway Patrol.But the people have so far prevailed.During protests on the night of Sept. 21, police shot Justin Carr, a Black man, in the head with a rubber bullet — he passed away from his injuries late Thursday night. The police — in collusion with politicians and the corporate media — have put forward an outrageous lie that this man was shot by another demonstrator. The Charlotte police have murdered 2 Black men just this week.We must be clear that this lie is an effort by the state to divide and distract from the central issue at hand — the escalating police war on Black and Brown communities that has created the conditions the masses of people are rising up against.The police are an occupying army in the Black and Brown communities. They are the most parasitic social grouping in society. They play the role of hired mercenaries of the ruling class to keep workers and the oppressed in complete subjugation.The cops’ job is to protect the class rule of the 1%, the banks and the corporations against the interests of the multinational working class and oppressed people. The police are one of the tools of repression and violence utilized by the 1% against the masses of people, along with the prisons, the courts, the military and the corporate media. We say: ABOLISH THE POLICE!The irresolvable crisis of the capitalist system at a dead end is to blame for racist state repression whose objective is to divide the working class and imprison and murder Black and Brown and other oppressed people with impunity.Charlotte is itself caught in a deep contradiction. The city is the second largest financial center in the U.S., home to huge multinational banks and corporations like Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Duke Energy. The tremendous wealth of these institutions — the product of wages stolen from the workers — stands in stark contrast to the intolerable conditions imposed on the working class and particularly on Black and Brown communities.We fight for a revolutionary socialist future that can abolish once and for all the rule of the capitalist class and their many agents of repression and finally rid society of all forms of oppression.We stand unequivocally on the side of the Black community that is rebelling in Charlotte against police terror! To rebel is justified!Black Lives Matter!National Guard Out of Charlotte!Full Amnesty for All Those Arrested!Abolish the Police & ICE!Abolish Capitalism! Fight for Socialism!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Chief Justice-led bench was hearing a PIL urging that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Journalists in the State are finding it extremely difficult to make both ends meet. A prayer was made to the Court to direct the State Government to create a separate fund for the benefit of the Journalists. “According to the petitioner (an advocate), many of the Journalists are not permanently employed by the Print & Electronic media. Instead, they work on commission basis depending on the news items furnished by them for publication/broadcasting”, noted the division bench. “No doubt, it is the duty of the State to look after the welfare of the people”, it remarked, continuing to observe, “But, before this Court passes any directions, it will be in the interest of justice to direct the petitioner to file a representation before the respondent”. The Court ordered that the respondents shall consider the representation filed, either by the petitioner, or by an Association of Journalists with regard to their interests, and rights. “It is, certainly, hoped that the respondents will consider the representation most sympathetically”, it commented. The bench directed that the representation shall be filed, either by the petitioner, or by the Association of Journalists, within a period of one week from June 2. The respondents are directed to consider, and decide the representation, after giving an opportunity of hearing, within a period of two weeks from the date of receipt of the representation.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Paratrooper’s family wants answers in mysterious death: ‘It was so cruel what they did to him’

first_imgChmiel/iStockBy LUIS MARTINEZ, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The family of Specialist Enrique Roman-Martinez wants answers from the U.S. Army about the circumstances of his death and dismemberment after he disappeared during a Memorial Day camping trip with fellow soldiers to North Carolina’s Outer Banks.Six weeks after his partial remains washed up ashore, his loved ones still do not know what happened.Roman-Martinez’s family in California said that Army officials at Fort Bragg, North Carolina have not been forthcoming with details about the case, leaving them with unanswered questions about the 21-year-old paratrooper serving in the famed 82nd Airborne Division.“It was so cruel what they did to him,” Roman-Martinez’s sister, Griselda Martinez, said in an interview with ABC News affiliate KABC earlier this week. “Why did they have to do that to him? He’s already gone. Why did they have to go the extra step to do this to him?”“It was really hard for us, too,” she added.Roman-Martinez was camping at South Core Banks over Memorial Day weekend, with seven other soldiers, when he mysteriously disappeared from the camp site.An unidentified person placed a call to 911 around 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 23, and said Roman-Martinez was last seen wearing blue shorts and no shirt around midnight, 19 hours before the call was placed.The paratrooper’s partial remains were found a week later, on May 29, on Shackleford Banks Island, part of the Cape Lookout National Seashore. His body was identified using dental records.Roman-Martinez’s phone and wallet were later found at the camp site, leading his family to wonder what could have prompted him to leave without them in the middle of the night.“Because my brother can’t see without his glasses, so for him to walk out in the middle of the night without his glasses, it’s not likely,” Martinez said. “He can’t see, where would he go?”Martinez told the Fayetteville Observer that Army officials have not told the family much about the ongoing investigation into what happened to her brother.“Over Memorial Day weekend we lost Enrique to a senseless act of violence,” Major General Christopher Donahue, the commander of the 82nd Airborne Division, said in a statement issued Thursday. “We are doing everything we can to support his family and find justice for Enrique.”“I’ve personally spoken with his family to assure them that we will not stop in our pursuit to bring those responsible to justice,” he added. “The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command has offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the homicide. I encourage anyone with information related to this case, regardless of how small, to contact the Fort Bragg CID Office.”An Army official told ABC News that there is no suspicion of a reprisal or hate crime motive in the case.Donahue described Roman-Martinez as “a valued member of our team” and expressed his condolences to his family, friends and fellow paratroopers.“My family’s thoughts — and the thoughts of the leadership of the 82nd Airborne Division — are focused on Enrique’s family and battle buddies as we mourn together,” he said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Zoopla and Rightmove provide ‘competitive advantage’ – Connells

first_imgA detailed analysis of email leads delivered by Zoopla and Rightmove throughout 2014 show that the level of duplication between the two major portals is lower than previously thought, the Connells Group has claimed.Internal data from Connells reveals that of all consumers who sent email leads through the major portals, 93.8 per cent were unique to either Zoopla or Rightmove with only the remainder duplicated between the top two portals.What’s more, Connells claims that for the highest value market appraisal leads, 99.9 per cent were unique, with just 0.1 per cent duplication.David Plumtree (left), Group CEO Estate Agency Connells Group, said, “With the recent launch of Agents’ Mutual we were keen to confirm the value delivered to our network by the major property portals, reaffirming the low level of duplication of leads between the two main players, which has continued into 2015.“The value of being on both Zoopla and Rightmove is clear, and remains the best choice for our customers and network of agency offices in 2015.”As a shareholder in Zoopla, the Connells Group has opted not to sign up to OnTheMarket.com (OTM), which launched earlier this year.Meanwhile, Zoopla Property Group (ZPG) has confirmed that traffic to its websites and mobile apps reached 50 million visits last month with mobile accounting for a record 62.6 per cent of all visits as a growing number of consumers are using the Group’s broad range of services to find agents and search for property while at home or on the move.Although Zoopla – the UK’s second biggest online property site behind Rightmove- has seen a fall in the number of estate agents advertising on its website due to competition from OTM, it insists that its audience has been largely unaffected by the launch of OTM.ZPG claims that its web traffic since the end of January has been on average more than 25 times greater than OTM’s with the gap between the two websites widening over the three weeks to Easter.Lawrence Hall (right) of ZPG said, “We are delighted with our continued strong audience levels and the value we are delivering to our members. It is a tough market and attracting a significant audience and delivering high levels of appraisal and applicant leads along with brand awareness for our members is what we are focused on. Our members enjoy a significant competitive advantage over non-members and we have now seen dozens of members who left us to trial OTM return.”HOT TOPIC This story is being discussed in the forum nowThe Negotiator says:Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

Foxtons gambles on fees ban by not hiking charges to landlords

first_imgFoxtons has not increased its landlord fees following the tenant fees ban, its latest results reveal.This has enabled the company to poach landlords off competitors and grow lettings market share as many other agents seek to recoup lost tenant fees from their landlord clients, it is claimed.But the tactical move has cost Foxtons revenue within its lettings business, which has dropped by 4% to £22.1 million during the past three months.The figures are part of yet another poor quarterly set of results which Foxtons has blamed on the struggling London sales market as well as the tenant fees ban.Its overall results for the three months to the end of September reveal group revenue down 7% to £32.5 million, taking its total revenue for the year to £88.1 million, a reduction of 5% on the previous year.Sales down 15%In sales, Brexit and other factors including Stamp Duty continue to depress volumes and prices in London. This reduced its sales revenues by 15% to £8.4 million which,, it claims is a reasonable performance given the ‘market backdrop’.“Overall, this was a resilient performance set against the London sales market which continues to deteriorate, and the impact of the tenant fee ban on our lettings business,” says Foxtons‘ CEO Nic Budden (left).“We are encouraged by landlords’ reaction to our improved lettings offer and are confident we can continue to gain share in theLondon lettings market. We continue to manage costs tightly to ensure the business is well-placed to withstand this prolonged market downturn and are confident that this, coupled with our improved overall offer, positions us well for the future.”nic Budden ‘the Brexit effect’ Foxtons November 1, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
