Show Comments ▼ Nick Clegg says coalition will cap university fees Share Tags: NULL NICK Clegg, the deputy Prime Minister, yesterday said the government would impose a cap on university tuition fees. Lord Browne, the former BP chief executive who recently carried out a review into higher education funding, has recommended that universities be allowed to charge as much as they like. A levy on institutions charging over £6,000 a year would discourage them from going much higher.However, Clegg yesterday admitted he was “uneasy” about unlimited tuition fees, and aides said he was working on a compromise that would see fees capped at around £6,000. The existing cap stops universities charging more than £3,290. Asked if tuition fees would be capped, Clegg replied: “Correct”. The apparent volte-face comes as deputy Liberal Democrat leader Simon Hughes, a standard bearer for the left, warns that the government cannot rely on Lib Dem votes to get its housing benefit cuts through parliament. Hughes said that three of the proposed seven changes to housing benefit set out in the spending review were the “wrong ones””and would need to be altered if Lib Dem MPs were to support them.

Regions: UK & Ireland New Sports Minister Mims Davies has revived the threat of a mandatory levy on gambling operators, should the existing voluntary donations system fail to adequately support problem gambling services.Davies (pictured) welcomed a “substantial increase” in industry donations to problem gambling treatment bodies this year, in a speech at the GambleAware conference in London – her first major intervention on gambling since replacing Tracey Crouch last month.Figures published in July show that operators’ donations trebled year-on-year in the three months to June 30, with Davies citing the new GambleAware-funded NHS clinic and Problem Gambling Support Team in Leeds as evidence of improvements in care.Maintaining that the Government wants the sector to “generate employment and investment”, she said it is essential that operators continue to meet expectations prescribed by the Gambling Commission in its Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice.“I am pleased to see a substantial increase in industry donations this year to help tackle problem gambling,” she told delegates. “This is vital work to ensure support for those who experience harm.“We want the voluntary system to work – but if it doesn’t, we do not rule out other ways of funding support, including a mandatory levy.“The profits of gambling operators aren’t my prime concern. Ensuring problem gamblers have access to the right treatment is.”The donation-based system that funds GambleAware was proposed under the 2005 Gambling Act. UK-facing operators are asked to donate annually a minimum of 0.1% of their annual gross gambling yield directly to the charity.In a further update on how the government is looking to reduce problem gambling-related harm, Davies said discussions continue as to whether there should be a ban on the use of credit cards in gambling transactions. With the FOBT maximum stake reduction now confirmed for April, the Minister said operators are “expected to mitigate the employment impacts and provide support to those who are affected by any job losses.”Davies added that she and Minister for Digital Margot James will meet with gambling and technology executives next week to discuss technological solutions that could help protect vulnerable people from gambling-related harm.“This includes building our understanding of how online advertising is actively targeted away from children as the rules require, as well as understanding the opportunities for using new technology to strengthen player protections online,” she said.“As the gambling industry continues to evolve and adopt new technologies, we need to keep pace in terms of regulation and protecting players.“Let me be clear, I expect industry to take action where they believe harm is taking place and I expect them to take steps to minimise it.”In July, GambleAware said it was making “good progress” towards funding its £16m (€18m/$21m) spending plan after seeing a spike in voluntary donations from the industry.The UK charity, which called for a statutory levy last year in response to poor donation figures, received £2.8m during the three months to June 30, which was almost treble the approximately £1m in the same period last year.Image: Gov.uk 7th December 2018 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance Sports Minister revives mandatory levy threat Mims Davies issues warning over donations and credit card spending in first major speech on gambling since replacing Tracey Crouch Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Legal & compliance

The UN believes that thousands have been killed and as many as 180,000 displaced in the violence.Eye witness accounts of the conflict shared by clergy from the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan (ECSSS) over the past few weeks have fueled calls for prayers and support for the beleaguered country.‘It’s a war zone’The most disturbing reports came from the Bishop of Bor Ruben Akurdit Ngong, now in Juba, who spoke to several media outlets about the situation in the town.In a recent BBC interview he described it as “really terrible, it’s horrible. You cannot even describe it.“Two days, we came out of the UNMISS compound and it seemed to be alright. But suddenly things turned around and we heard gunshots and the rebels running towards Bor town. So everyone started fleeing in different directions. They ran into the bush. Some came into the town. Some went to the River Nile, others towards Lakes State and Juba.“It’s a war zone. You find dead bodies everywhere. When you are in Bor town, you move around closing your nose because of the smell. Bor is in anarchy because the government is not in control. The rebels are not in control. What they are doing is fighting each other. There is no system, no way that help can come to the civilian population. There is no way even to get medicines to the vulnerable. It is just a really terrible situation.”On New Year’s Eve, the Rev. Daniel Kon Malual, Secretary in the Office of the Bishop of Bor reported that, “Most of the Diocese of Bor Congregation is displaced and all villages of the archdeaconry of Baidit, Tong, Mathiang are all burned down by the Lau Nuer Youth. [The] Majority of the people are under trees in Awinrial County of Lake State. Other population flew to swarm area West of Baidit Payam and are under threat of attack from Lau Nuer Youth.”Making their escapeFour days earlier South Sudan priest the Rev. John Daau had written to supporters to explain that he, like so many others, had made the difficult decision to flee South Sudan–his overriding concern was the safety of his heavily pregnant wife who was only two weeks away from giving birth.Daau laid out the challenges facing the tens of thousands trying to leave the country and his guilt at making the decision to escape to family in Kenya in a relative’s vehicle.“Those [who could] preferred to leave the country for fear of what may happen next despite the assurance from the government that all will be alright soon. I saw thousands of South Sudanese and foreigners (mainly Kenyans and Ugandan) crowded at the [Ugandan] border…Perhaps, over 2000 private vehicles were parked by the time I was at the border, all going through clearance on both side of Ugandan-South Sudan border as drivers scrambled in the long queues to clear and receive visas.”People are dyingOn January 3, the Primate of ECSSS, Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul, wrote in a letter to the Archbishop of Canterbury, that the situation was increasingly desperate.“I myself and the head of SUDRA (our Church’s local Relief and Rehabilitation Agency) visited the area and [saw] over 75 thousand people (and more are still coming) mainly women and children, some occupying churches, schools and other living under trees.“The situation is more desperate as there is no clean water to drink, little food to eat, no good sanitation and lack of health facilities.”Archbishop Deng Bul explained that, as a response to the crisis, he has formed an Emergency Crisis committee with the Bishop of Bor as its chairman. The committee is working with SUDRA to consolidate a proposal for the humanitarian response in the affected dioceses.The Archbishop called on relief agencies and the wider Communion to help the Province in its work to alleviate the suffering of people affected by the conflict: “Some of them are now dying of hunger and diseases, particularly the children … as the humanitarian crisis has reached a breaking point.”One response by Archbishop Justin Welby has been to write to all Primates of the Anglican Communion sharing with them ECSSS’s request for prayer and support.Collaborating on aidOver the Christmas and New Year period, Anglican/Episcopal agencies including Episcopal Relief & Development, the Anglican Alliance and the Anglican Board of Mission met on conference calls. Together, with members of ECSSS, they have been working on developing a coordinated humanitarian response through the local churches.According to Bishop Andudu Adam Elnail of ECSSS’s Kadugli Diocese, whatever relief goods are required, he believes there will also be a need to train pastors for reconciliation and peacebuilding.The consolidated proposal is expected in a few days and will be posted on the Anglican Alliance’s website.Prayers for peaceElsewhere in the Anglican Communion, South Sudanese living in Melbourne, Australia turned an annual service of thanksgiving for the past year into a national day of mourning and anxiety on New Year’s Day.More than 200 adults and 70 children gathered at the Anglican Church of the Apostles, Sunshine, for a regular thanksgiving service. But because most of those present come from the vicinity of Bor, the prayers reflected the anxiety and concern about relatives back home.Prayers for ‘peace in South Sudan and wellbeing of all civilians’ were led by the Rev. Abraham Angau. Prayers for the future were led by the Rev. Daniel Gai Aleu.The Anglican Church in Melbourne has 17 congregations worshiping in the Dinka language, scattered from Sunshine to Dandenong.In Uganda, the Primate Archbishop Stanley Ntagali also used part of his Christmas message to call for a dialogue to end the conflict in South Sudan.

The Noh House was built for a Noh performer within a quiet residential area in Tokyo. The traditional Japanese musical drama has been performed for over 700 years, and the Noh stage is composed of a main stage and a bridge (runway) that connects to a backstage. While meeting the client’s functional requirements such as daily living spaces and a Noh rehearsal room, Koji Tsutsui Architect & Associates wanted to incorporate the soul of Noh into the architecture.

The rehearsal room is also a Japanese tearoom, which is done in traditional Japanese finishes such as a calligraphy-ink wall, traditional quince tree flooring, silver Japanese alcove, concrete ceiling & shoji screen and lures one into a deep meditation.

The house is a simulacrum of Noh stage set up vertically where the daily routine of climbing up a stair gradually becomes a ritualistic walk on the runway towards the Noh stage.
