Jones’ father, former JJB chairman Sir David Jones, stepped down from his role as non-executive director on 28 July due to ill health. Stuart is understood to have followed just days later. Insiders suggested yesterday that Jones junior had been sacked, after a management shake-up at the firm in the wake of Sir David’s departure. However, a company spokesman insisted he had resigned. “I’m sure he will have a fruitful career in whatever he does next,” he added. Jones junior has worked for several family businesses including consultancy firm Retail Gateway, where he courted controversy in 2008 after being asked to write a six-month review of JJB’s online business. His father had been appointed as a non-executive director at the sports firm just months earlier, while his mother worked as company secretary for the consultancy. Keith Jones (no relation) was hired by JJB as chief executive in March, to try and stem heavy losses at the high street retailer. center_img KCS-content JJB loses links to the Jones family as Sir David’s son quits Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayot whatsapplast_img read more

first_imgFriday Jun 13, 2008 Random tries from the IRB Junior World Championship The IRB Junior World Championship is currently taking place in Wales, with under 20 teams from all over taking part in a fantastic tournament that has had talent a plenty on show and has been highly enjoyable to watch.With the way rugby is going these days, professional players are getting younger and younger, therefore, this Championship boasts a number of top flight players on teams such as Australia, New Zealand and England to name a few.That means that the standard is high, and the competition ferocious, with the top sides already having notched up big scores against teams that seemingly have a huge lack of depth.The next round of matches take place tomorrow, on Saturday, when the pool stages come to an end. In Pool A New Zealand meet Argentina and Ireland face Tonga, both at Cardiff Arms Park.Pool B sees Samoa facing South Africa in what should be a bruise fest, and the USA face Scotland, both games being played at the Racecourse Ground in Wrexham.England meet Australia while Canada face Fiji in Pool C at Newport’s Rodney Parade, and France tackle hosts Wales and Italy meet Japan in Pool D at Liberty Stadium in Swansea.If you’re close to any of those areas, get along for the games as tickets are cheap and the rugby is top class.The four Pool winners will then progress to the semi-finals on Wednesday, June 18, with the other teams playing off for the other placing from fifth to 16th on the two remaining match days. After many requests for footage, weve thrown together this basic video that shows tries from each of the participating nations.

Sustainability is a concept that has been crucial in informing all components of the design, construction and daily use of the house. Rather than create an icon of sustainability, the idea was to consider practically and level-headedly at every step how the house could be least taxing on the environment in both the short and the long term. Key points of departure were maximum reuse of built elements and materials already on site and the use of sturdy and proven techniques to achieve the lowest possible energy consumption. The clients see a sustainable house not as the end of the story but as an inspirational spur to a way of life that places concern for mankind and nature and care of our planet at centre stage.

Roofs and facades have been insulated or reinsulated (R Value 3.5). The floor too has been insulated (R Value 3) and finished with a smooth continuous concrete deck floor on compression-resistant insulation. The old wood frames have been replaced with new aluminium-framed facade units of insulated glass (U Value 1.1) Save this picture!DiagramEnergy and indoor climate Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgA floor heating system has been laid into the new concrete deck floor that can heat or cool the rooms using low temperature heating (water Self-generated energy is not being treated as an option for the time being. The surrounding trees mean that there is much shade for a large part of the year and little wind. The part of the roof that does catch the sun all year long is provided with a solar boiler for hot water facilities (head pipe system). Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgVentilation of the house is premised on the natural circulation of air throughout the building. Ventilation units in the outer walls make it possible to regulate the exact quantity of air entering the building. In summer, ventilation can be stepped up using a mechanical discharge system in the roof lights of the central hall. Of the two spaces with a lot of glazing, the kitchen has a glass sliding roof and the living room a roof hatch that allows for additional ventilation in warm weather. The ventilation units enable the house to be aired without having to leave windows and doors open. Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgAnother source of cooling is by means of a roof-top pump that draws up water from the brook and sprays it onto the roof. The water then flows back into the brook. There is a high efficiency wood burning stove in the kitchen, fuelled with wood from the garden. The heat yield supports the heat pump, thereby reducing the energy consumption of the thermal storage system. The house’s open layout ensures that heat from the stove can spread throughout the house. The living room heats up quickly in winter by being oriented to the south and having all-glass facades, and thus serves as a heat source for the house as a whole. Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgInterior All living spaces receive daylight from more than one direction. Storage units, bathrooms and other ancillary spaces also receive daylight, some of it indirect. All artificial lighting is LED-based. Much of the furniture is built-in and where possible made of sustainable materials: – settees in the living room and kitchen, curtains in the nurseries: wool filt Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgWater and garden Rainwater on the roofs is run off directly into the brook. All waste water (greywater) is run off into a tank where it is purified organically and then discharged into the brook. Only biodegradable cleansing agents are used in the house. The new garden layout is informed as much as possible by the replanting of existing trees and shrubs. This gives a greater openness but also more privacy where this is required. The garden is sprinkled exclusively with water from the brook. An electric lawn mower robot keeps the grass at the correct height, and the planting in the garden can be tended without the need for herbicides and artificial fertilizers.

Indiana Corn and Soybean Farmers Appreciate Lugar Farm Bill Work

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Corn and Soybean Farmers Appreciate Lugar Farm Bill Work The next step in this process is getting the bill scheduled for time on the Senate floor in May.  “The message we want to deliver to our leaders in Washington is that we need a Farm Bill now.  Kicking the can down the road isn’t acceptable in our eyes.  So far, agriculture is one of the few industries willing to step up and help reduce spending,” said Gary Lamie, ICGA President. ISA and ICGA appreciate the hard work from Senator Lugar and his staff and look forward to working with him on passage of a 2012 Farm Bill. The memberships of the Indiana Soybean Alliance (ISA) and the Indiana Corn Growers Association (ICGA) thank Senator Richard Lugar for his support during the committee mark-up of the 2012 Farm Bill last week.  ISA and ICGA appreciate the leadership of Senator Lugar in framing the debate for the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) program with his work on the Aggregate Risk and Revenue Management (ARRM) proposal.  ARC will provide a strong safety net for farmers while saving $23 billion in farm program spending over the next decade.  Senator Lugar also introduced an amendment to fully fund the biofuels programs created in 2008. The original draft this year included no mandatory funding for energy programs.

Facebook Twitter ISA and ICGA will continue to work on getting this bill heard on the Senate floor and seek passage in the House, with the goal of having a Farm Bill on the President’s desk before the August recess.  “We recognize this is only the first step in a long process, but each journey has to begin somewhere.  We appreciate the leadership of Senator Lugar in creating a stronger safety net to help manage the volatile market facing America’s grain farmers,” said Kevin Wilson, ISA President.
