Europe is Scor’s biggest market and Transamerica will boost its market share in the US, where it currently earns less than 30 per cent of its global life reinsurance premiums.“With the acquisition of a major mortality risk reinsurance portfolio in the United States, Scor aims to further increase its geographical diversification,” it said.Scor, which also sells property and casualty reinsurance, eclipsed Reinsurance Group of America as the lead bidder for Transamerica in March.Scor said it would pay for the deal through its own funds and a potential debt issue of around €200m, without the issuance of any new shares. Aegon sells reinsurance unit to Scor to help pay off its outstanding state aid

This site for this project has one main view to the east towards Camelback Mountain. The intent of the project was to focus the views towards the iconic landmark to capture it and have it constantly presenced in the experience of the house while creating other introspective moments of experience.

An entry sequence leading from the street, along a koi pond, into the entry, and to a negative edge pool distinguish the main public spaces and master suite while offering a place of repose. Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanThe main living space of the house maintains an open plan configuration and borrows Camelback Mountain and brings it into this space. This relationship is further maintained by the ability to slide sliding glass doors completely away for an uninhibited view. Two guest bedrooms, also part of this open-ended volume, afford the view due to the plan configuration of the bathroom and closet spaces along the west elevation. Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanThe master suite by contrast is a more cellular division of spaces that control views and privacy. A study is located at the same level as the entry and living space while the master bedroom and master bathroom are situated higher in section to allow for additional privacy. The master bedroom has one specific corner view whose sliding glass door is mounted to the exterior of the CMU volume in order to exacerbate the specifity of this view. For reasons of privacy, the master suite is an introverted and focused series of interior spaces and exterior spaces while still maintaining a view to Camelback Mountain from the master bedroom. Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanThe CIP concrete base houses a sunken garage and an exercise area that leads to a sunken garden in the back of the house. The exercise area can be opened up to the garden space for outdoor exercise as well. By configuring this base lower than the original grade, the project sought to minimize the impact of the vehicle as part of the primary elevation. The sunken garden allows for a cooler outdoor space which promotes outdoor exercise from the interior exercise area. Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanThe floating volume which houses the living room and two bedrooms is a metal stud framed construction whose cladding is comprised of blind fastened 4’ X 15’ 10 gauge sheets of weathering steel. In order to minimize the economic impact of this cladding, 40,000lbs of steel were cut to size and shipped directly from the steel mill in Alabama to the job site. This strategy proved to be economic as the cost of going directly to the steel mill proved to be less than using lower quality material from a local steel supplier. Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanThe interior finishes of the project juxtapose highly refined materials with raw industrial materials in order to heighten one another’s unique qualities. The interior finishes are comprised of polished wenge millwork, non-directional stainless steel countertops, white Carrera marble, and terrazzo flooring. These finishes constantly enter a dialogue with one another by means of their configuration and junctions.

This marks the team’s Big 12 home opener, and the first conference game to be played in the newly renovated Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.TCU will be coming off a fairly easy non-conference schedule, as they will play only two Power 5 teams before the Big 12 opener in Stillwater, Oklahoma, on January 2. The Frogs lost both of their matchups against West Virginia last year, one in overtime. TCU has never beaten West Virginia in the program’s history.The next two big contests that TCU has are against currently ranked No. 21 Baylor on January 13 and February 27. Games against Baylor are always bigger than games against any other opponent, considering the history between the two schools.While the universities do not call the contests between TCU and Baylor a “rivalry,” there is no love lost between the two teams. TCU lost both games against Baylor last year, one in overtime. Since joining the Big 12, TCU has never beaten Baylor on the court.The Challenging ContestsHalf of the Big 12 is currently ranked in the Top 25, according to the USA Today Coaches’ Poll. Kansas University tops the Big 12, currently ranked No. 5. The Big 12 with the Big 10 for most teams in the Top 25.This means that all of TCU’s conference games are going to be a hurdle. The toughest set of games, however, are likely to be against Kansas and Iowa State.The Frogs face off against the Jayhawks on January 16 and February 6. Kansas is seeking to win the Big 12 regular season title for the 12th time in a row.The Jayhawks leads the all-time series 10-1, with the lone loss coming in 2013 as one of the biggest upsets in Big 12 basketball history.The second toughest set of games will be against the Iowa State Cyclones. Iowa State starts the season as the second highest ranked team in the Big 12 at No. 7. TCU plays tISU on January 23 and February 20. TCU lost both of its games against Iowa State last year and has never beaten the Cyclones since entering the conference.The message is simple: The Frogs have their work cut out for them, and it will take a full team effort to compete with their opponents. The margin for error is minimal in the Big 12.

Linkedin printA group of college students from the Metroplex led a climate change protest Saturday at Trinity Park, challenging political figures who took money from fossil fuel executives and calling for immediate legislative changes. “Climate change is the biggest threat we face,” said Alyssa Hutchinson, the student who organized the protest. “We must face it together fully with our minds, bodies and spirits.”Protesters marched around 7th Street, one of the most well-known areas in Fort Worth, Saturday. (Photo by JD Pells)Hutchinson, a biology student at Texas Wesleyan University (TWU), was one of many students protesting at the event.Several TWU students and faculty ran and spoke at the climate protest, but students from other Texas colleges were also in attendance.“This was specifically supposed to be targeting the youth,” Hutchinson said. Even so, there was representation from all ages.After reaching the end of the march, participants were met by the Climate Change Flash Mob, the name of an interpretive dance performed and choreographed by DW Jones Dance.DW Jones Dance seeks to give audiences new ways to experience choreography, often through activism, according to their website.A dancer tangles herself in plastic bags during the Climate Change Flash Mob. (Photo by JD Pells)A speaker from Sunrise Movement who is also a senior at the University of Texas at Dallas took the stage after DW Jones Dance, talking legislative progress on the national level.Sunrise Movement is an “army of young people” who contest corrupt fossil fuel executives in politics and protest to bring climate change to the political forefront across America, according to the strike’s program.“We are here to prove that ordinary people can shift the power back to where it belongs and protect the people and places that we love,” Brandy Smallwood, another Sunrise Movement speaker, said.Tim Dandy, who graduated from TWU in 1975, was one of the musicians at the protest. He has been an environmental protection specialist with Federal Agencies since 1985. (Photo by JD Pells)In 2019, the group visited with congress members in Washington D.C., which led to Rep. Jim McGovern (MA-02) signing on the Green New Deal, according to the group’s website.At the event, the Sunrise Movement supplied letters encouraging people to write to Congress concerning the Green New Deal and the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, which was introduced to the House of Representatives in Jan. 2019.“[The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act] imposes a fee on the carbon content of fuels, including crude oil, natural gas, coal, or any other product derived from those fuels that will be used so as to emit greenhouse gases into the atmosphere,” according to congress.gov.The Green New Deal is a 10-year plan to move to 100% clean and renewable energy and to create millions of jobs. The result, however, would cut down on those jobs involving considerable carbon emissions.Brandy Smallwood, the outreach coordinator at Sunrise Movement Dallas, spoke at the protest, pointing out the benefits of the Green New Deal. (Photo by JD Pells)Despite heavy criticism from both Republicans and Democrats, the Sunrise Movement is hopeful the bills are economically feasible.“These people have been very resistant because we have been talking about ending their livelihood,” Smallwood said about workers who oppose the Green New Deal. “We need to change the conversation.”The resolution for the Green New Deal is in its first stage of the legislative process, according to govtrack.us. Both bills will be up for contention this year.Global Climate Strike-Fort Worth organizes strikes every Friday, and has an upcoming event on Earth Day called “EarthFest.” For more information, visit the Global Climate Strike-Fort Worth Facebook page or email them at [email protected] TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history JD Pells Twitter Facebook + posts Welcome TCU Class of 2025 JD Pellshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jd-pells/ Students react to guilty verdict in Chauvin trial JD Pellshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jd-pells/ Former Fort Worth, TCU Police Department officer dies of COVID-19 and on-duty injury complications JD Pellshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jd-pells/ Paddle-out in Maui honors Floyd, other black lives Twitter JD is a journalism major at TCU from Maui, HI.

The group had threatened in a 13 January letter to kill the The Independent’s managing editor, Alagi Yorro Jallow, and destroy the paper. Three months later to the day, the paper’s printing press was set fire to and completely destroyed. The group criticised the paper’s coverage of the tax evasion trial of APRC parliamentary spokesman Baba Jobe.
