Show Comments ▼ AIG agrees $2.2bn Taiwan unit sale US INSURER American International Group has accepted a $2.16bn (£1.39bn) cash offer for its Taiwan Nan Shan Life unit from a group led by local conglomerate Ruentex.The sale marks the beginning of the end of a drawn-out process fraught with political wrangling over the past year.AIG has been trying to sell the unit for some 15 months as part of its plans to help pay back the US government for its $180bn bailout, but regulatory issues have dogged the sale process and might yet delay it further.The buyer group, called Ruen Chen Investment and comprising Ruentex Industries and shoe maker Pou Chen, has signed a deal for the 97.57 per cent of Nan Shan that is for sale, Ruentex said in a statement to the Taiwan stock exchange.“Ruen Chen offers strong operational and funding capabilities and possesses a clear ability to satisfy the strict criteria that governed AIG’s bid review process,” said Robert Benmosche, AIG president and chief executive, in a separate statement.AIG had a deal worth $2.15bn last year blocked by the regulator, citing concerns about the previous bidders’ industry experience. That forced AIG to put the asset back on sale and prompted Benmosche to personally visit the regulators in December to discuss the sale.Sources have previously told Reuters that Ruentex, a major player in the hypermarket business in China and Taiwan, may not meet all of the five criteria the regulator has laid down for a buyer.“The regulators’ criteria are subject to interpretation. Hence, there is still some uncertainty about this deal going through,” said Sally Yim, senior analyst at the financial institutions group at Moody’s Investors Service, adding that AIG is likely to have reviewed the bid carefully so would feel confident about getting it past the regulators.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Editor’s Note: Officer Jason Wiggins of the Apopka Police Department was honored last night as Officer of the Year at the Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce’s Blues and BBQ Awards Dinner. This honor was also announced in January of 2018 at the APD’s awards ceremony. This article is republished from January.By Reggie Connell/Managing Editor of The Apopka VoiceFor a small news site like The Apopka Voice, access is everything. For us to write about a department, organization, person or administration, there has to be a relationship, a trust, and an ability to communicate back and forth.No one understands this better than the Apopka Police Department, and no one is more intentional to keep the media in the loop than Officer Jason Wiggins.For the third straight year, I received an invitation to the APD’s awards ceremony. It is always an honor to attend, and a pleasure to write about, but having Wiggins win Officer of the Year was a welcome surprise to the night’s events.Wiggins didn’t win Officer of the Year because he communicates well with the media. It’s just one of the many roles he has played and is playing for the APD.Here is what his peers wrote about him in the Awards Ceremony Program:“The Apopka Police Department named Jason Wiggins as the 2017 Officer of the Year at its annual awards ceremony on Friday.Officer Jason WigginsWiggins has been an officer with the APD for 18 years. During his tenure, he has worked as a Patrol Officer, Bike Officer, School Resource Officer, and Patrol Division Corporal.But Wiggins has shined in is his current position as Community Policing Officer.As the agency liaison to the Apopka Citizens Police Academy, Wiggins breathed new life into the program re-energizing the membership, working with the board to utilize the members and grow the community events the CPA has been supporting and participating in.As Community Policing Officer, Wiggins took to the streets and went to businesses in and around the city, introducing himself and gaining a rapport with the community. Since doing so, he was able to bring in over $10,000 in donations for the annual “Shop with a Cop” event. Unfortunately, he was hospitalized and unable to attend the event, but he continued directing his vision from his hospital bed. The Shop with a Cop event sponsored 100 children, which was an agency record.Wiggins takes no credit for his hard work and most people would never know the amount of planning he puts into every event he works. His humility and quiet ego is never shown but is worthy of recognition.In addition to his current position, Wiggins is an agency Range Master instructing new recruits and managing the firearms training throughout the department. Wiggins thoroughly enjoys the training aspects of his responsibilities.He has been an integral part of the SWAT since 2006, continuing as a Team Leader tasked with organizing, assisting with training, planning, mission deployment, and operations.Wiggins is more than worthy than this award and it is a delight for everyone who works with him to see his recognition.”Michael McKinley, Chief of the APD, also recognizes Wiggins’ value to the agency.“Officer Wiggins is an outstanding member of the Apopka Police Department,” McKinley said. “He is always professional and a pleasure to be around. He works hard every day and since becoming the agency’s Community Outreach Officer, he has done a tremendous job partnering with our community. Jason has expanded and/or enhanced our community outreach programs which helps foster our relationships with the citizens of Apopka. His hard work and dedication to the Apopka Police Department and the citizens make him very deserving of this recognition.”Congratulations Officer Wiggins and thanks again for all you do for this community, and for keeping The Apopka Voice in the know about the APD.

I keep on design activities in Hokkaido, so most of my projects ran there. By designing in a remarkably cold, I continued thinking on response to completely different contexts from other areas. They are mainly “cold” and “snow”. Of course there are other various things to deal with, but these contexts have the great impact. In this state, I felt the possibility of “a windbreak room” and thought about the expansion and diversity.Save this picture!© Ikuya SasakiThis was not only a physical response, but also a response to pleasure. Even in the building code, there are rules that respond to the area of the frost line. However, the code primarily corresponds to performance, not to pleasure. Some people think it is natural, but I think that it is natural to think that its criterions are for the purpose of people’s pleasure. In that case, I have long believed that there should be regional standards and easing of regulations about the size of the “roof” in the snowy land. Snowfall gives various restrictions to our life. The most serious of them is cleaning snow. Houses are often built mainly in residential areas. That means that the building coverage ratio is low. Therefore, the size of the roof becomes smaller.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ikuya SasakiSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ikuya SasakiWhat I always think about when I designed for example the roof of the approach between the “windbreaker room” and the main infrastructure road and the parking space is that the life in snowy land is dramatically improved by rather doing away with than easing of the building coverage ratio. Furthermore, there is a possibility that it can lead to the creation of landscape peculiar to the area. From this kind of thinking I designed this house. First of all, we set up a large roof full of building coverage ratio and placed a compact one-room dwelling below it. The air volume was reduced by using the frost line.Save this picture!SectionBetween the interior space and the outdoor space there is a rectangle under the large roof. Although this space is treated as an indoor in the building code, physically it can be said that both outdoor and indoor, semi-indoor and semi-outdoor. The rectangle under the roof responds to the pleasure of life both summer and winter. And it will connect life with the city and the earth space. It is also an attempt and possibility of an intermediate area.Save this picture!© Ikuya SasakiProject gallerySee allShow lessSheikh Nahyan Centre for Arabic Studies & Intercultural Dialogue / Fouad Samara Arch…Selected ProjectsChui Yuan / Shanghai HuaDu Architecture and Urban Design GroupSelected Projects Share “COPY” 2016 Houses Photographs: Ikuya Sasaki Area: 137 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Lead Architect: Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/878280/roof-and-rectangular-house-jun-igarashi-architects Clipboard CopyHouses•Tomakomai, Japan CopyAbout this officeJun Igarashi ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTomakomaiJapanPublished on August 24, 2017Cite: “Roof and Rectangular House / Jun Igarashi Architects” 23 Aug 2017.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. MPs and MSPs have joined forces in a cross-party call for Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright to speed up charity law reforms that will deliver millions of pounds in extra funding to good causes through charity lotteries.Near-identical motions tabled in Westminster and Holyrood state their support of the Government’s “preferred option” of introducing a £100 million annual sales limit for charity lotteries. This option was proposed by the official regulator the Gambling Commission.The issue has support from six Parliamentary parties, the Conservatives, Labour, Scottish National Party, Liberal Democrats, the DUP and Plaid Cymru.The motions, tabled in Westminster by David Amess, MP for Southend West, and in Holyrood by Miles Briggs, MSP for Lothian, explain that a rise in the sales limit would allow charity lotteries to reduce bureaucracy and administration costs in order to provide more funding to charities and good causes.Sir David Amess, Conservative MP for Southend West, who proposed the Westminster motion said:“Charity lotteries, such as those managed by People’s Postcode Lottery, do great work in raising money for good causes and charities across the country.“With the stroke of a pen, Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright and Charity Minister Mims Davies have an opportunity to dramatically increase the amount of funding available to the charity sector – I and my colleagues urge them to take it.”Miles Briggs, Conservative MSP for Lothian, who proposed the Holyrood motion said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 “The proposal to raise the sales limit for charity lotteries would have an immediate and very positive impact on the level of funding available to charities – it would also ensure that the charity lottery model for funding charities is sustainable for the years ahead.“The Government has an opportunity to make a decision that will be of obvious benefit to charities and good causes – it is one they should not miss.”The parliamentary motion comes further to opinion polling of MPs which found significant backing in Parliament for the changes, with 55% of MPs polled backing the move to a £100 million limit and only 15% against, with the rest undecided. Commenting, Malcolm Fleming, Head of Public Affairs at People’s Postcode Lottery, said:“It is great to see such a cross-party show of strength from right across the UK in support of raising the current caps on charity lottery fundraising.“It is a recognition that these changes will help charity lotteries cut bureaucracy and administration at no cost to the taxpayer.“The new limits are backed by charities, the Gambling Commission, MPs and the public – we hope they will be implemented as soon as possible.” Main image: People’s Postcode Lottery supported charities.

Prison abolitionists in several Northeast cities are organizing “Justice Is Dead” car caravans on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to demand an end of “Death by COVID” in prisons. The Jan. 18 actions will target governors in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, who have allowed genocidal prison neglect to flourish alongside the pandemic.Russell Maroon ShoatzThe abolitionists’ actions urge compassionate and immediate release of veteran Black Panther political prisoner Russell Maroon Shoatz, who suffered through COVID-19 while undergoing stage 4 cancer treatments. Like Shoatz, many of the political prisoners are elders, who are increasingly exposed, infected, suffering and dying during the COVID pandemic. The Free Maroon Now Committee, which is coordinating actions, has called for 2021 to be the year to free all U.S.-held political prisoners. Many, including Shoatz, have spent over 50 years in prison. For more information see the Free Russell Maroon Shoatz website: tinyurl.com/yysyx8ty.This year marks the 50th anniversary of the historic Attica prison uprising, as well as the murder of imprisoned revolutionary George Jackson. With the recent upsurge by social justice movements against racism and police brutality, many similarities can be found between revolutionary conditions in 1971 and those today. Now is the time to free all political prisoners and to free Maroon!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The Irish Navy is playing an important role and saving thousands of lives in the Mediterranean Sea but Ireland can and should be doing much more to help ease the crisis,” he added.Deputy O’Dea maintains that lessons need to be learned from the Second World War.“These families are predominantly war refugees from Syria. They are risking their lives to try to get to another country to live normally and raise their children in a safe and secure environment. They are crossing land and sea in a desperate cry for help.
