The Victoria line was suspended after a train broke down near Seven Sisters station at peak rush hour, stranding around 400 passengers in the tunnel for two hours before TfL staff led them through the tunnel. The Northern, District and Circle lines also suffered delays due to myriad signal failures and defective trains. The chaos followed Monday’s power failure on the Jubilee line, which also led to thousands of passengers escaping by walking down the underground tracks. “I am sorry that for a second day many of our customers have had difficult and in some cases severely interrupted journeys to work,” said London Underground managing director Mike Brown. “I know that having to walk along the track through a tunnel is distressing. “Our customers deserve much better than the service they have had in recent days and all our energies are focused on delivering a fast, reliable and safe service.”The rail union RMT said the breakdowns illustrated the dangers of cutting staff.

Santander UK IPO could hit further delay

first_img Tags: NULL whatsapp KCS-content Thursday 3 February 2011 8:23 pm Santander UK IPO could hit further delay THE slated £5bn float of a fifth of Santander’s UK business might not get away until 2012, according to a person close to the IPO process. “If the markets are not in the right condition, it’ll be 2012. There’s a figure in mind the bank wants to get,” said the source. The prospect of putting back the float follows comments by the group’s chairman Emilio Botin, who yesterday pushed back expectations of a float to the second half of this year.Former chief executive Antonio Horta-Osorio forecast last year that it would take place before the third quarter of 2011. One analyst told City A.M. that the float could be put off “indefinitely” if market conditions for banks do not improve. Industry values have been depressed by an impending onslaught of regulation that could increase banks’ costs and restrict their business models.The uncertainty surrounding the float follows a fourth quarter earnings report dented by worsening non-performing loans, mostly in mortgages in Spain and Portugal, as well as a one-off liquidity requirement imposed by the Bank of Spain in the third quarter of 2010 that cost €472m (£401.5m). Pre-tax profit for the group rose by a slim 2.4 per cent to €12.1bn but net profit was down 8.5 per cent. Despite a drag from the Eurozone, the bank earns 65 per cent of its profits outside continental Europe. Its shares closed 1.7 per cent lower at €8.99 yesterday.

Portugese igaming revenue grows to €54.1m in Q3

Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe Western Europe Portugal AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The Portuguese gambling regulator, Serviço Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos do Turismo de Portugal (SRIJ), has revealed record online revenue for the seventh quarter in a row, thanks to casino and sports betting growth.The total of €54.1m (£45.2m/$60.3m), up from €48.3m in the second quarter and a 39.1% year-on-year rise, was generated by 11 businesses, which held a total of 18 licences by the end of September – up from two operators in the corresponding period in 2018.A total of €23.6m was raised in online gambling tax (IEJO) in the third quarter, up by €6.4m in relation to the same period the previous year.Casino revenue improved from €25.3m to €28.2m quarter-on-quarter – an increase of €8.8m on Q3 of 2018.Online sports betting revenues reached €25.9m in Q3, an increase of €6.4m on the same period in 2018 and up from a total of €23m in the previous quarter.Portuguese sports bettors wagered a total of €114m in the quarter – slightly up on the second quarter figure of €112.1m, but down from the record total of €131.3m posted in the first three months of the year. More than three-quarters of the total amount wagered (77.53%) was on football.There was a sharp quarterly rise in the total spent at casinos, up from €699.8m between April and June to €741.5m between July and September.There was also a significant quarter-on-quarter increase in the number of newly registered online gamblers to a new record of 149,000, up from 102,200 in the second quarter of 2019 and 125,200 in the first quarter of the year. During Q3 of 2019, a total of 354,100 people placed bets online.However, in spite of the significant increases across all of the key metrics, Portugal’s real gambling figures across unlicensed as well as registered websites are likely to be considerably higher.In October, a survey commissioned by the Portuguese Association of Online Gambling and Gambling (APAJO) found that 56% of gamblers continue to bet with unlicensed as well as licensed operators more than three years after legal online gambling was introduced.

Back to Earth

first_imgCasino & games The launch of legal igaming in Sweden has been a reality check for an industry grappling with stricter approaches to regulation and proved more fraught than it would have liked. But Camilla Rosenberg, director general of the country’s gambling regulator Spelinspektionen, argues it has strong and constructive dialogue with the sector. And, she adds, it’s only the first stage in a process that faces yet more twists and turns ahead.By the end of 2019, bemoaning the fact that the long-awaited launch of regulated igaming in Sweden had turned into a nightmare for operators and became something of a mantra for many commentators.The first full year of regulation saw the Swedish Gaming Authority (Spelinspektionen) take a particularly strict approach to keeping operators in line. A steady flow of fines – and in one case a licence revocation – followed. And the negative developments for the industry have continued into 2020.It’s been a fast-moving and fraught process. And critics have claimed that Swedish players are being pushed to the black market by an overly aggressive government and regulatory authority.On the other hand, Sweden’s approach could be viewed as an example of a new, stricter way of regulating, in a world where the industry’s public standing is much diminished. The Dutch regulator sees Spelinspektionen’s approach as one to emulate, after all.The regulator’s director general Camilla Rosenberg admits that operators definitely were not prepared for Spelinspektionen’s approach to enforcement.“I also think they were unaware of differences in Swedish regulations when it came to consumer protection and other areas,” she says. “Maybe they didn’t have the time or opportunity to put effort into looking over the regulations, or simply expected it to be more similar to Denmark or the UK.“That could have been part of the problem, them not actually realising they were violating rules.”This was not all down to the regulator spotting something it didn’t like and acting fast. The public regularly flagged issues and operators’ wrongdoing. These tips from players often prompted the investigations and eventual punishments.“It was difficult to have an idea of what would happen in the new market, and due to Spelpaus we got a lot of information from the public on what was working and what was not,” she explains. “We didn’t know what to expect, and started to discover multiple violations. Some people think we didn’t do enough, while others thought we were too aggressive.”Industry fightback It’s not one-way traffic; the industry has pushed back. 
There has been a stream of criticism from operators which has now reached the point where the industry is bluntly claiming the authorities are risking having licensees cede the market to the offshore operators.The public statements from both sides often look particularly harsh. Branscheforenigen for Onlinespel (BOS) has been unstinting in its criticism. Many felt the conclusion of a Spelinspektionen report – that the industry was not used to such rough treatment – was seen as dismissive of regulated businesses.“In my opinion we have good discussions and exchange of information [with BOS and Spelbranschens Riksorganisation] on the conditions and challenges of the industry,” Rosenberg says, however.“We think the dialogue works well and that there is a mutual respect between the industry and Spelinspektionen.”Furthermore, operators are not taking the fines issued by Spelinspektionen without complaint. Rosenberg estimates that there are up to 50 ongoing court proceedings. Almost every sanction handed out has been challenged by the industry.In December 2019, it emerged that only Paf had paid its fine. It’s unlikely that number has grown. The appeals process could move through a number of courts, meaning it could be five years before fines are paid.This doesn’t frustrate Rosenberg. “I think it’s part of the game,” she says of the appeals process.“It’s framed legislation, so it needs to be decided by the court how to interpret certain regulations. What is a bonus, for instance, and whether offering something violates the terms.”She argues the courts, regarding challenges to licence durations, have confirmed Spelinspektionen’s decision-making process.This saw a number of operators have their licence duration cut below the full five years, often for financial weaknesses. Some of the regulator’s decisions have been overturned, while other licensees have had their licence terms extended – but kept below five years.“The important thing is the court has ruled we are justified in restricting licences for applicants,” she says. “The court says that is appropriate if certain things are not in place, when the operator is applying.“So by limiting it, the court [effectively] ratifies the process.”Name of the game In Rosenberg’s eyes, the re-regulation of a market is an ongoing process that takes years to finalise. She says it will be “a couple of years” before this process actually comes to an end. Constant change is the name of the game.In the energy industry – where she worked for regulator Energimyndigheten prior to joining Spelinspektionen – re-regulation began in the late ’90s and took “a long time” to get the market functioning as desired.“Since this has been done in an extremely short time, both for us and the industry, there is an ongoing inquiry regarding the gambling market, which started right away,” she explains. “They are looking at marketing [in this review], for instance, and there is an ongoing three-year evaluation to assess the new regulations and how the market is working.“That will give a lot of input to politicians, and there will be new regulations in future – I am sure of it.”Advertising has certainly proved controversial, after Spelinspektionen warned operators over “excessive” advertising shortly after the market opened.Rosenberg says nothing currently limits the volume of advertising, and that after an initial surge that prompted its warning, there has been a balancing out, even a reduction. However, this could be a result of it shifting to social media, or other below-the-line channels.“It will be very interesting to see what measures they advise,” Rosenberg says. That report is due in October this year. As she says, it’s an ongoing process.“Patience is really a virtue when it comes to re-regulation,” she says.Covid controls Yet the sudden and brutal advent of Covid-19 has prompted a step that many stakeholders feel goes too far. Minister for Health and Social Affairs Ardalan Shekarabi, the architect of Sweden’s regulated igaming market, proposed a series of stiff restrictions for operators.This includes a weekly deposit limit of SEK5,000 (£411.36). Sign-up bonuses would be capped at SEK100 per customer. Mandatory limits on playing time are also likely, while the government will explore restrictions on return-to-player (RTP) rates.It will be Spelinspektionen that is responsible for enforcing these new controls. Should they be implemented – and industry commentators believe this to be highly likely – the controls will be enforced until the end of 2020. This has prompted much of the industry warnings.Rosenberg argues that player protection becomes increasingly important in the current situation. This will see Spelinspektionen launch a review of licensees’ social responsibility strategies.Some operators have already dismissed any talk of an uptick in online casino play. However, Rosenberg claims there are “very early indications” that turnover has increased.“These are very early indications and it is a little early to say really,” she adds. “We are awaiting figures for April 2020 to learn more.”If regulation is indeed an ongoing process, however, that sort of action has to be followed up by an industry reaction explaining why certain ideas do not work.This is evident in the proposals to restrict betting on rule violations in sports.“It’s to protect the integrity of the games and of course underage people,” she says, admitting it’s a difficult issue. BOS was quick to condemn the proposal as effectively decriminalising match-fixing.“Oh, that one’s interesting,” Rosenberg says when BOS’ comments are put to her. “That needs another court ruling to say whether that’s actually the case.“So it’s not 100% certain that their interpretation is the right one, but it could well be,” she admits.“The likes of BOS are expected to share their opinion, and we will take that into consideration and see whether we should actually develop new regulations or change the existing regulations.”It’s a difficult case, she adds, possibly the most difficult aspect of Spelinspektionen’s remit. And the industry’s “unambiguous” reaction to these restrictions has at least prompted a rethink, albeit for a bid to limit betting to the top four tiers of football leagues and ban betting on friendlies.Again, Rosenberg says, this an example of the fluidity of regulations. By gathering industry feedback, the regulator can better understand the potential pitfalls of its approach.“It is important to hear the views of various stakeholders,” she says. “As I mentioned earlier, we will see what results come from the referral procedure.”Looking offshore These proposals have all prompted warnings from the industry of licensed operators being forced out of the market, with studies suggesting channelisation rates are falling as players migrate to offshore operators.“We did this survey last year that said 17% of the people gambling online don’t know if they are playing at a licensed operator or not, whereas 3% said they are knowingly playing with unlicensed sites,” she says. “So, what does that mean?“The 17%, one interpretation could be they need more information to choose a player within the licensed system, or they are choosing one within the system because it takes more effort to find an unlicensed operator.”It will follow in the Netherlands’ footsteps by monitoring unlicensed companies offering their sites in Swedish, and local payment solutions. This will be supported by the Swedish police and prosecutors, the Consumer Authority and the Financial Supervisory Authority.Spelinspektionen will also work with regulators in other jurisdictions such as the Malta Gaming Authority and the Gibraltar Ministry of Commerce’s Gambling Division. This will increase the pressure on unlicensed operators in multiple territories.“[In the] inquiry prior to the new Swedish Gambling Act, they did a lot of work and shared a lot of information to different regulatory bodies, and I think all of us agree that cooperation is a very important part of what we do,” Rosenberg says. “We can also put a lot of pressure on operators if we work together. “Now we’re working closely with Malta for instance, [so] if an operator loses their licence in Sweden, it might be a small country, but if we are passing information to the MGA, it risks a much bigger impact.”It has proved much more difficult for operators than anticipated, but at a time when markets that have long been regulated have turned to stricter approaches, Sweden feels increasingly like a test case for a new normal for the industry.Rather than railing against the unfairness of it all, it might be a case of learning the lessons Spelinspektionen is teaching.

REUTERS/Steve Nesius[Episcopal News Service] Las diócesis de Nueva York, Nueva Jersey y Connecticut seguían evaluando los daños y el caos causados por el huracán Sandy mientras la región se encaminaba lentamente hacia la recuperación el 1 de noviembre.Grandes secciones de los tres estados seguían sin energía eléctrica el 1 de noviembre, a muchas de las cuales les faltó la electricidad antes de que llegara la “supertormenta” del 29 de octubre, y los informes de daños y apagones siguen apareciendo.La diócesis de Newark reabrió sus oficinas el jueves, y mantuvo su horario regular de servicios.“Sentimos que realmente nos libramos”, dijo Nina Nicholson, la directora de comunicaciones y tecnología de la diócesis, en una llamada telefónica con ENS. Añadió que hasta donde ella sabe ninguno de los miembros de la diócesis resultó lesionado y los daños fueron mucho menores de lo que se esperaba.La parroquia episcopal de Todos los Santos [All Saints] en Hoboken, una de las áreas más afectadas de la región, sufrió daños en su edificio del Jubileo, en el que entraron de cinco a siete pies de agua. La parroquia misma se libró de cualquier daño. Y en la iglesia de Santa María [St. Mary’s] en Sparta, un árbol cayó sobre el jardín de recordación de la parroquia. Por otra parte, agregó Nicholson, la diócesis ha recibido informes de árboles caídos, canaletas destrozadas, aparatos de aire acondicionado arrancados de ventanas y persistentes faltas de energía eléctrica.Al menos cinco iglesias de Newark tienen electricidad y servicio de Internet inalámbrico (Wi-Fi) y han abierto sus puertas a los miembros de la comunidad:* San Pablo [St. Paul’s] en Chatham (200 Main St., 973-635-8085)* San Pablo [St Paul’s] en Englewood (113 Engle St., 201-568-3276)* Santiago Apóstol [St. James’] en Montclair (581 Valley Road en la esquina de la avenida Bellevue, 973-744-0270)* San Lucas [St. Luke’s] en Montclair (73 South Fullerton Ave., 973-744-6220)* Iglesia del Calvario [Calvary Church] en Summit (31 Woodland Ave. 908-277-1814)John Sosnowski, canónigo del Ordinario de la Diócesis de Nueva Jersey, en un mensaje publicado el 31 de octubre en la página web de la diócesis, instaba a los miembros a incorporarse a su página de Facebook para mantenerse al tanto de las necesidades según fueran surgiendo y responder a ellas.“Hemos recibido ofertas de asistencia de iglesias que querían ayudar. Les instamos a utilizar la página de Facebook [de la diócesis] para crear conexiones entre las iglesias y notificarse mutuamente respecto a necesidades inmediatas de las cuales estuvieran conscientes. Al crear estos vínculos, una iglesia puede ser capaz de responder a las necesidades de otra de manera más expedita, en lugar de comunicarse a través de la Casa Diocesana”, dijo él en su mensaje.A los de la Diócesis de Nueva Jersey que necesiten asistencia en una escala mayor se les ha pedido que se dirijan a Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales.El último aviso de la Diócesis de Long Island fue una actualización a las 10:25 A.M. del 31 de octubre en la que informaban que los daños de la diócesis seguían siendo menores, con Todos los Santos [All Saints] en Great Neck, en la costa norte de Long Island, que había perdido todos sus carteles y un árbol había caído en San Pablo [St. Paul’s] también en Great Neck, ocasionando que la iglesia perdiese una canaleta del techo. Los daños a las dos iglesias de Great Neck vienen a sumarse al que ya se habían reportado en el columbario de San Beda [St. Bede’s] en Syosset.El campus diocesano sufrió una extensa “caída de árboles” y continúa sin electricidad, según el parte actualizado.Katie Mears, directora del programa de Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales para Preparación y Respuesta a Desastres en EE.UU., y Andrew Dietsche, obispo coadjutor de Nueva York, se reunieron el 1 de noviembre con el clero de la Diócesis de Nueva York que se había visto afectado [por el huracán] “para compartir información, coordinar recursos e identificar zonas con necesidades importantes”, según una actualización publicada en la página web de Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales.Mears también ha estado trabajando con los Coordinadores Diocesanos para Desastres en las diócesis de Long Island, Nueva Jersey y Newark, informaba la actualización.(Los Coordinadores Diocesanos para Desastres son nombrados por el obispo para servir de enlaces entre Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales y el liderazgo diocesano, y para alentar y ayudar a la diócesis y a sus congregaciones en la preparación, planificación y respuesta a un desastre).En la Diócesis de Nueva York, dependiendo de la región, se ha pedido a los miembros que se pongan en contacto con el coordinador de desastres de la diócesis, el Rdo. Stephen Harding, y el de la región del Hudson Medio.En un mensaje grabado en un buzón de voz el 2 de noviembre, Harding dijo que Staten Island y la 2a. Región habían sido azotadas por la tormenta de manera particularmente cruel, con muchos árboles caídos, pero hasta ahora la diócesis no ha recibido informes de daños estructurales catastróficos.Han implementado un mecanismo para responder localmente, con personas de la region del Hudson Medio que le prestan ayuda a las de la 2da. Región.Y la iglesia de San Marcos [St. Mark’s] en el Bowery, iba a abrir sus puertas el 2 de noviembre de 10 A.M. a 4 P.M. con ayuda de voluntarios de la iglesia provenientes de más arriba de la calle 34 para brindar agua y comida.Ian Douglas, el obispo de la Diócesis of Connecticut, está en Auckland, Nueva Zelanda, asistiendo a la reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, pero se mantiene en contacto con la diócesis por teléfono. Los obispos sufragáneos James Curry y Laura Ahrens han estado al tanto de las parroquias, dijo Karin Hamilton, canóniga de comunicación y medios de difusión, en una llamada telefónica con ENS desde su oficina.En un mensaje a la diócesis, los obispos de Connecticut dijeron: “Esta terrible tormenta ha creado muchas dificultades en muchas de nuestras ciudades y pueblos, entre nuestro clero y feligreses, así como entre nuestros amigos y vecinos. En nuestra respuesta a sus necesidades, en oración y acción, podemos ser agentes de la misión de Dios en la comunidad más amplia. En este momento de recuperación nos encantaría conversar con las parroquias y deanatos respecto a cómo nuestra Iglesia puede servir en las zonas que han sido afectadas. Somos aliados de Respuesta a Desastres en Estados Unidos de Ayuda y Desarrollo episcopales. Y ellos cuentan con recursos a los que podemos tener acceso y los cuales podemos utilizar para ayudar en la recuperación de nuestros barrios”.Ha habido algunos daños, “pero no tan grandes que no podamos hacerles frente”, dijo Curry en una llamada telefónica. “Para lo que nos preparamos es para ver de qué manera podemos ser útiles a la comunidad mayor”.Desde que [el huracán] Sandy tocó tierra cerca de Atlantic City, Nueva Jersey, el 29 de octubre, ha cobrado las vidas de más de 56 personas en Estados Unidos y Canadá, además de por lo menos 76 personas que perdieron su vida cuando Sandy atravesó el Caribe.Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales también ha estado en contacto con la Diócesis Episcopal de Haití, donde los daños ocasionados por el huracán Sandy parecen haber excedido a los causados por el huracán Isaac a fines de agosto. Las regiones agrícolas en el sur del país resultaron duramente azotadas, despertando inquietudes tocantes a los altos precios y a la posible escasez de alimentos frescos. La diócesis está haciendo una evaluación de las necesidades en las zonas afectadas y continúa recibiendo informes del clero local, lo cual contribuye a configurar los planes de respuesta que actualmente se encuentra en proceso.La Diócesis de Jamaica y la Iglesia en la Provincia de las Antillas (CPWI por su sigla en inglés) también han sufrido extensos daños y se encuentran actualmente en el proceso de evaluar los daños, dijo la Rda. Glenda McQueen, funcionaria de la diócesis encargada de [las relaciones con] América Latina y el Caribe, en un mensaje electrónico a ENS el 1 de noviembre.La República Dominicana sufrió extensas inundaciones y unas 300 personas han buscado albergue en las iglesias de la Diócesis Episcopal de la República Dominicana, y en Cuba la región oriental de la isla resultó duramente afectada, confirmó el obispo Wilfrido Ramos-Orench, funcionario de la Iglesia Episcopal para la IX Provincia, en un correo electrónico enviado a ENS el 2 de noviembre.En una declaración dada a conocer el 1 de noviembre, el Muy Rdo. Gary Hall, deán de la Catedral Nacional de Washington, dijo: “Le damos gracias a Dios por los meteorólogos cuya previsión y dedicación impidieron que este fenómeno sin precedentes nos tomara de sorpresa. También ofrecemos nuestras oraciones de gratitud por aquellos cuya labor ha servido para aliviar el sufrimiento y que continuarán realizándola, especialmente en las regiones más afectadas de Nueva York y Nueva Jersey, en el transcurso de las próximas semanas.“En este período cuando la Iglesia universal honra a todos los santos y a los fieles difuntos, los más de cien individuos que han muerto debido a esta tormenta están en nuestras mentes y estarán en nuestras oraciones”, añadió Hall. “Sus muertes resaltan la importancia de una infraestructura estable y los riesgos de un clima inestable. Rindiéndole tributo a sus vidas y siguiendo el ejemplo de tantos que ayudaron a nuestro país en este momento de prueba, luchemos por encontrar estabilidad y dirección en cualquier tipo de nuevas tormentas que nuestra sociedad y nuestro planeta puedan enfrentar. Que podamos dar continua alabanza y gracias a Dios por todas las personas y lugares que nos importan, reafirmando la disposición a compartir los talentos que Dios nos ha concedido a través de ellos”. – Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducido por Vicente Echerri.

Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET [MaineStewards] When Mallory was very small, I decided that our family would live into the season of Advent. I would make it part of her early spiritual formation that, for us, Christmas would be the start of the season, not the end of it.Like many new moms with great ideas, I went a little overboard.For the four long weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I drove around town with a clear, small voice in the back seat announcing, “Those people aren’t waiting nicely.” every time we passed a house with a gorgeous tree in the front window.With less than a week to go, my husband couldn’t take it anymore. Our tree was going up, with or without the kid’s permission. After a bit of shuttle diplomacy, I persuaded her that Sunday afternoon of “Advent 4” was OK with God. We had waited nicely.The next year I was wiser. Instead of “the time of waiting,” we celebrated Advent as “the time of preparing, a season of anticipation.”Not only was this more practical, it was probably better theology. When I think of Advent as the time of preparing, I feel freer. I feel more open to the journey from the longing of Israel to singing with Mary as our spirits rejoice in God our Savior. Instead of bottling it all up until Christmas Eve, I let it unfold as the time draws nigh.This year, I find Advent a bit more challenging as I struggle to reconcile the world around me and the world within me:How does light come into the darkness as my husband begins the transition back to work after a period of disability, moving from too sick to care to “what if they’ve learned to live without me…”?How do I prepare a way in the wilderness when we’re about to be thrown off a fiscal cliff?How does the desire of nations “bind in one the hearts of all mankind” when the news from Gaza and Israel, Syria, and Egypt doesn’t bode so well for our sad division to cease?[i]These are not questions of “Should we spend less on Christmas this year, just in case?” Rather they are questions that can only find voice at where the inner life intersects with a world that needs me to walk with more faith than I have. They are questions that call me to stand at the crossroads of “be still” and “do something.”As the First Sunday of Advent approaches, as I prepare to prepare, as it were, I find comfort in the Psalm appointed for this week:Psalm 25: 1-9  Ad te, Domine, levaviTo you, O Lord, I lift up my soul; My God, I put my trust in you; let me not be humiliated, nor let my enemies triumph over me.Let none who look to you be put to shame; let the treacherous be disappointed in their schemes.Show me your ways, O Lord, and teach me your paths.Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; in you have I trusted all the day long.Remember, O Lord, your compassion and love, for they are from everlasting.Remember not the sins of my youth and my transgressions; remember me according to your love and for the sake of your goodness, O Lord.Gracious an upright is the Lord; therefore he teaches sinners in his way.He guides the humble in doing right and teaches his way to the lowly.All the paths of the Lord are love and faithfulness to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.What lovely hope and promise… The true promise of Advent…Emmanuel will come; God’s people will rejoice; everything will be OK.Amen.[i] The Hymnal 1982— Lisa Meeder Turnbull, a member of the Congregational Consultants Network and former missioner for stewardship in the Diocese of Maine.

The house and courtyards are elevated slightly above natural ground to deal with flooding of the Brisbane River, flooding which occurred during its construction in 2010.Save this picture!© Toby ScottA modest budget is part of most of our projects. In this case the clients were considering a Metricon house. A basic three bed house for $450,000.Save this picture!© Toby ScottWith a budget 20%  above that of a speculative home we could massage areas to include:- A place for Matt to work or friends and family to stay;- A home that is socially interactive within family and to the broader community;- A home that will cope with sun, rain and flood for 50 to 100 years with little maintenance;- A home that is comfortable all year with out mechanical heating or cooling.Save this picture!SectionThe house is configured as a series of two story pavilions that run down the depth of the block, each separated by a courtyard containing landscape, gathering spaces and a pool.Save this picture!© Toby ScottThe external face of pavilions and courtyards (walls & roof) are covered by shade cloth. The shade cloth covered courtyards provide protection from sun, insects and neighboring unit blocks.Save this picture!© Toby ScottThe elevated timber pavilion to the street housing the master bedroom incorporates a pitched roof and screened verandah, a response to the local character. The middle pavilion incorporates living areas on the lower floor and children’s bedrooms on the upper floor.
