Camouflage caps a great move

first_imgAs Team India heads closer to the ICC World Cup this summer, one thing is for sure, team bonding and team spirit is at an all-time high.Forget for a moment the loss to Australia in the third ODI on Friday, scenes from before the match caught the eye. As honorary Lieutenant Colonel MS Dhoni presented the camouflage caps to skipper Virat Kohli and other teammates, scenes one saw were incredible.As an honorary officer in the Territorial Army, Dhoni has taken his role quite seriously. Perhaps, he has been one of the best brand ambassadors for the Territorial Army and his plan to make the team wear a different cap was a huge hit.The sight of Dhoni presenting a different cap, designed apparently by the clothes sponsor of the team, looked good. When one talks of playing from the heart and doing it for the country, this move to sport a different cap could well be seen as an exercise in stressing the importance of building camaraderie.One could well argue there has never been any dearth of camaraderie in this Indian side, but in times like these, when we like to wear patriotism on our sleeves, Team India has paid the right respect which the Pulwama victims deserve. Before this, the team had also worn black armbands during a T20 match against Australia.For the few critics questioning the motive or rationale behind the camouflage caps, be sure this had the approval from the guardian of the game – the International Cricket Council, with no objection raised by match referee Ranjan Madugalle.advertisementOne is not sure whether it was the camouflage cap effect or a signal that Virat Kohli needed to be on attack mode, his 41st ODI century against the Aussies again had cricket fans in raptures.The more one watches Kohli score centuries these days, which is so frequent, you could be sure cricket statisticians are having a busy time. Given his rich vein of form and penchant for playing briskly, comparisons with the previous legend, who people also called the God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar, have become a must.In each sport, the definition of “greatest” has been an intense debate. If you take football, Pele vs Maradona was a pet topic for the old-timers. For this generation of football fans, which are in billions around the globe, the ultimate hero need not be Pele or Maradona but a Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.If you take tennis, ‘who is the greatest’ becomes an intense debate around the time of the four Grand Slams each year. To compare artists from the wooden racquet age to modern athletes who wield the graphite racquet would be incorrect. Someone like Rod Laver, who himself is a Roger Federer fan, was at one time the greatest.Till 2000 or so, Pete Sampras was the greatest. With Federer taking over tennis and then Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic also winning big titles, the debate has been stirred again. More so, as Djokovic has returned to form in a big way and has been described by pundits as someone who can break even Federer’s record.Back to Kohli, even though he plays in a team sport, his contribution with the bat has been nothing short of magic. Whatever be the conditions and wherever be the venue around the globe, his batting has been like a monk in meditation. Nothing can disturb him other than perhaps an own error on his batting.There is no doubting since the time the Pulwama terror attack took place on February 14 and 40 lives were lost, it has churned the collective consciousness of the whole nation. What followed was even more disturbing when Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was captured by Pakistan before being released.Incidents like these definitely affect the common man. Lovers of sport definitely forget their woes for a few hours when they watch Kohli hammer hundreds. The grammar of his batting has become a topic of debate even for the wizards like Shane Warne.Warne has said on social media that it will take him time to decide on the best batsman, though personally for him Don Bradman would be a first choice.Irrespective of the greatest tag and when Kohli scores his 50th ODI ton, what remains important is the Indian captain is fit as a fiddle. As someone who pays huge importance to fitness and diet, his running between the wickets has been exemplary.If there is one area where Kohli continues to learn from Dhoni, it’s in leadership skills and cricket acumen. Surely, the camouflage cap will contribute even at a later date when India face Pakistan in the World Cup.advertisementlast_img read more

Japan tightens entry requirements for Sri Lankan students

Japan has decided to tighten its entrance requirements for overseas students from five countries including Sri Lanka, as part of its efforts to prevent illegal immigration, the Global Times reported.According to Japanese newspaper Nishinippon Shimbun, Japan’s Immigration Bureau notified nearly half of the country’s Japanese language schools in February, in which at least 10 students were either expelled or dropped off in 2015, to adopt stricter policies for overseas students from five countries, namely, China, Vietnam, Nepal, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka. The newspaper said that the Japanese public is questioning why these countries are chosen for the tighter entry requirement.“Students who wish to study in Japanese universities normally will study Japanese language for at least half a year in a language school. They could get a visa after their application materials were approved by the Ministry of Justice,” Li Dan, 32, an employee of a Japanese enterprise in Beijing who has studied in Japan for four years, told the Global Times.According to Li, some Chinese people may use the student visa as a cover to stay in Japan to earn a lot of money. After the visa expires, they would usually continue to work in the country illegally. The bureau stressed that the change is part of a policy rather than punishment.However, statistics from the bureau showed most of the illegal immigrants in Japan in 2015 were South Koreans, reaching 13,000, followed by those from the Chinese mainland, about 8,700 people. Vietnam ranked the fifth while Nepal, Myanmar and Sri Lanka were not among the top 10. “Most overseas students in Japan come from the five countries and there is an increase in illegal immigration, and previous reports suggested that some overseas students work in Japan illegally,” the newspaper quoted an official from the bureau as saying. The new policy will be implemented from mid-March and have already affected some applications. These schools are required to ask students to present assets certificates including their bank card records and copies of deposit books at the time of application. Otherwise, they are not allowed to enter Japan. According to The Japan Student Services Organization, about 94,000 Chinese people pursued their studies in Japan in 2015, accounting for 45 percent of the total number of overseas students.

DMT and the German Aerospace Centre DLR launch innovative inspection and surveying

first_imgOn September 6, 2016 DMT and DLR presented their newly developed, innovative and GNSS-independent measuring system DMT Pilot 3D at Hamburg’s shipping fair SMM. The mobile system DMT Pilot 3D, originally developed for the Mars missions, offers a wide range of application possibilities, in particular for all kinds of inspection and 3D surveying requiring fast accurate measurements where satellite-based navigation is not or insufficiently available. In the case of ship inspection, the system can be used to record and automatically position inspection photos in a previously created 3D computer model of the vessel. The system, however, can also be applied in a number of other fields, including mining or underground infrastructure projects, the forestry sector and in almost all industrial installation and building projects.“The inspection and 3D surveying system DMT Pilot 3D has the potential to significantly reduce the effort involved in documenting the results of structural inspections of ships – while at the same time increasing the quality”, says Dr Christian Cabos, Head of Information Management Technologies at the auditing and classification company DNV GL. “We are already in a position to integrate the results of ship inspections in our inspection software ShipManager Hull.” As a pilot user of the GNSS-independent inspection and 3D surveying system, DNV GL has been closely involved since the beginning in developing the system specifically for customers in the shipping industry, to create a flexible and user-friendly product.The DMT Pilot 3D system is being developed in a long-term technological partnership with the German Aerospace Centre and the other partners ivii and VINS in close cooperation with end users. Within this partnership, DMT has taken on overall responsibility for the system and has the task of manufacturing the DMT Pilot 3D system and coordinating the global marketing activities.DMT Pilot 3D will also be exhibited at the upcoming ISM International Congress for Mine Surveying in Brisbane, Australia (6-9 September 2016), the Intergeo in Hamburg, Germany (11-13 October 2016) and the Colloquium on Abandoned Mining in Goslar, Germany (10-12 November 2016).last_img read more

RPMGlobal XECUTEs another mine planning and scheduling software update

first_imgXECUTE is the latest in RPMGlobal’s extensive line of mine planning and scheduling software solutions to receive an update.XECUTE 1.10 builds on the core capabilities of XECUTE and features advanced upgrades to improve the live planning environment. This uses “enterprise enablement” to deliver real inter-departmental collaboration, according to RPMGlobal.XECUTE was designed to bridge the gap between short-term planning and operational execution and has been adopted at several sites globally, RPMGlobal says.The latest updates have seen the product integrated with MinVu, a suite of products the company acquired earlier this year.When the MinVu acquisition was announced in December 2017, RPMGlobal said XECUTE would “be able to immediately utilise the MinVu integration adaptors to bring back data such as Equipment GPS coordinates, actual bucket positions, material movements, drill hole details, actual production rates and incorporate them into the production plan. This will extend the functionality of XECUTE whilst increasing the number of modules in the RPM suite.”MinVu’s ability to pull this data directly from areas where it would otherwise remain in silos, means manual data processes are eliminated and users spend less time gathering and manipulating data and producing reports, according to RPMGlobal.MinVu, itself, received an update last month focused on integration with the Australia-headquartered company’s Enterprise Planning Framework.RPMGlobal has also started to build XECUTE into an augmented reality environment on iPads, iPhones and Android devices, according to Michael Baldwin, Executive General Manager of Product Strategy.“This means you can access the information on mobile devices regardless of your physical location, which is often a problem with remote mining operations. This also allows for clear communication of the plan, including any updates to the plan,” he said.The latest release also sees new scheduling functionality, including upgrades to the integrated product optimiser as well as user interface improvements that make the live planning a better overall user experience, according to the company.XECUTE aims to minimises data entry and maximise planning value and adaptability by using automation to connect planning with operations, with 3D cross-team collaboration and integrated design and scheduling, according to RPM Global.The system combines RPMGlobal’s proprietary Product Optimiser with a game-inspired 3D interface. Enterprise data feeds provide planners with the most up-to-date schedule inputs, allowing outputs to be automatically pushed to downstream systems and closing the loop between planning and execution.RPMGlobal said: “The companies that have adopted XECUTE have realised the potential of a collaborative, live planning environment and the improvements this could bring to their mining operation.”last_img read more

Email with personal details of girl found at GPO accidentally sent to

first_imgUpdated 22:00SENSITIVE INFORMATION ABOUT a young teenager, who was found in a distressed state outside the GPO recently, was accidentally sent to the owner of a business that has a similar domain name to the HSE, TheJournal.ie can reveal.The email, sent by the Psychiatric Nurses Association (PNA), was supposed to be received by members of the trade union within the HSE. It requested assistance in identifying the girl and contained detailed information about her, as well as a photograph taken at the hospital.The business in question has a name that closely resembles the HSE’s and so its owner and employees have email addresses similar to those working for the public health body.Speaking to TheJournal.ie, the owner of the business said he found it “quite distressing” to receive the email, which gave specific details of the girl’s physical and mental wellbeing.“I’m a father myself and I got this photo of a child sent to me – I don’t know what to do with this,” he said.A spokesperson for the PNA said the union was asked by gardaí to contact members to ask if the child had ever been treated by them.“Gardaí were looking for our assistance and we were in a good position to possibly help in that way,” they said.However he said the intention was to send the email out to a “confidential list” of people.Sensitive informationThe business owner said this is not the first time he has received sensitive information that was meant for the HSE and that he has contacted them about it in the past.“I got onto them to get them to stop it but they wanted us to set up a system to gather all their emails and send them onto them and then contact all the people individually who sent us things,” he explained. “I think that should be up to them”.Commenting on the incident, a spokesperson for the Data Protection Commissioner said it is “the responsibility of the sender organisation to ensure, especially when dealing with sensitive personal data, that they have the correct contacts”.They said that they would expect an organisation which has inadvertently disclosed sensitive personal data to notify the commissioner’s office once they are made aware of it.“If the breach was on the sender’s part, then it would be a quality decision for the HSE if it wished to engage with that company,” they added.In a statement, the HSE said: “As confirmed by the Data Protection Commissioner the responsibility of data protection is on the controller and sender of the information, in this case the sender of the information was not the HSE.“Should any action be required on the part of the HSE by the DPC the HSE will cooperate fully.”First published 6amRelated: Girl found outside GPO may be a victim of sex trafficking>Read: Eleven breaches of patient data at HSE hospitals in six months>last_img read more

DICJ boss avoids questions on Macau retendering process as October 2019 deadline

first_img New Chief Executive vows to protect Macau’s gaming and tourism industry from harm “You all seem quite concerned about this question but I can’t give any related news,” Chan told reporters during a conference session at MGS Summit on Tuesday. “Of course the SAR government will make a decision and the DICJ will also participate in this round.”The government’s deflection of the issue comes despite leading Macau law firm MdME confirming to Inside Asian Gaming that a decision on SJM’s concession must by law be made no later than 31 October 2019.Under Section 13 no.2 of the Macau Gaming Law, if a concession is awarded for less than the maximum 20 years authorized by the present law, the government may at any time and “up to six months prior to the end of the concession” authorize one or more extensions of the concession, as long as the total period does not exceed the maximum 20-year term.With SJM’s concession contract running for a period of 18 years compared with the 20-year contracts issued to Galaxy Entertainment Group and Wynn Macau, the law provides the government the right to extend SJM’s gaming concession one or more times for up to two years at a time provided the extension is granted by October 2019. SJM’s concession contract expires on 31 March 2020.The same conditions apply to MGM China, which holds a sub-concession to SJM’s gaming license.“I believe it is likely the government will grant the two-year extension to both SJM and MGM to bring the term of their respective Concession Contracts up to par with the terms of the remaining concession contracts,” MdME’s Carlos Eduardo Coelho told IAG in reference to the concessions held by Galaxy, Wynn and their sub-concessions Sands China and Melco Resorts, all of which expire in 2022.“This also means that, as to the timing for granting an extension to SJM concession contract, the government shall issue such decision six months before the lapse of the SJM contract on 31 March 2020. The decision to grant the extension shall thus be made before October 2019.”However “at this stage there are no clear indications if the decision will be made sooner rather than later.” JW Marriott at Galaxy Macau named venue and Galaxy Entertainment Group named Venue Sponsor for 2019 Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner Macau’s gaming regulator has refused to shed light on the re-tendering of gaming licenses or the timeline for revealing key details, despite the deadline for any extension to the first concession expiry now being less than 12 months away.Asked for insight into the re-tendering process with the gaming concession of SJM Holdings due to expire in March 2020, the Director of Macau’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau, Paulo Martins Chan, insisted on Tuesday that he could offer no new information on the government’s plans.

CNN sues White House for barring reporter

first_imgA White House staff member reaches for the microphone held by CNN`s Jim Acosta as he questions US president Donald Trump during a news conference following Tuesday`s midterm US congressional elections at the White House in Washington, US, on 7 November 2018. Photo: ReutersCNN filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against the Trump administration over the revocation of press credentials for White House correspondent Jim Acosta, whose questions and reporting have been a frequent target of criticism by president Donald Trump.”We have asked this court for an immediate restraining order requiring the pass be returned to Jim, and will seek permanent relief as part of this process,” CNN said in a statement.The Republican president has steadily intensified his criticism of the media, with CNN remaining a major target.Trump erupted into anger last week during a news conference when Acosta questioned him about the so-called migrant caravan travelling through Mexico and about an ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.”That’s enough, that’s enough,” Trump said on Wednesday, as a White House intern attempted to take the microphone off Acosta. “You are a rude, terrible person.”The White House suspended his credentials later that day, with press secretary Sarah Sanders accusing Acosta of putting his hands on the intern who was trying to take the microphone from him. She called his behaviour “absolutely unacceptable.”Video of the encounter showed Acosta pulling back as the intern moved to take the microphone. He called the White House accusations a lie.”While the suit is specific to CNN and Acosta, this could have happened to anyone,” CNN said.”If left unchallenged, the actions of the White House would create a dangerous chilling effect for any journalist who covers our elected officials.”last_img

Researchers Generate Power From Polluted Air

first_imgResearchers at Belgium’s University of Antwerp and KU Leuven have developed a system to purify air while generating power.A small device uses nanomaterials to break down air pollution and produce hydrogen gas.“In the past, these cells were mostly used to extract hydrogen from water,” professor Sammy Verbruggen said in a statement. “We have now discovered that this is also possible, and even more efficient, with polluted air.”The handheld appliance—an all-gas-phase photoelectrochemical (PEC) cell—features two chambers separated by a membrane.While one side purifies air, the other produces hydrogen gas from the purification process. That gas is then stored and used later for energy, as with hydrogen-powered buses, or the hydrogen-fueled Toyota Mirai. (One of the cleanest-running cars on the road, the car’s only emissions are hydrogen and oxygen, neatly bundled as water molecules.)The UAntwerp/KU Leuven scientists’ innovation addresses two major environmental issues: clean air and alternative energy production. Plus, the eco-friendly gadget runs only on sunlight, using technology similar to solar panels.Verbruggen & Co. aren’t the first to harness the strength of the brightest star to purify chemical compounds.Earlier this year, California-based Tenkiv successfully crowdfunded a “fully modular renewable energy system,” the Nexus, that purifies 500 gallons of water a day using only solar power.This is only the beginning, however, for the UAntwerp/KU Leuven team.“We are currently working on a scale of only a few square centimeters,” Verbruggen said. “At a later stage, we would like to scale up our technology to make the process industrially applicable.”“We are also working on improving our materials so we can use sunlight more efficiently to trigger the reactions,” he added.Learn more about the process in the paper “Harvesting Hydrogen Gas from Air Pollutants with an Unbiased Gas Phase Photoelectrochemical Cell,” recently published by journal ChemSusChem.last_img read more

The game will include multi-player capabilities and be less addictive, Nguyen said.At its peak, Nguyen said he was pulling in $50,000 a day from the mobile-gaming sensation that had more than 50 million downloads, but that ended when he decided to remove the app after noticing people were too addicted to playing it. While he still is making a profit from in-app ads, he said it’s “not much,” adding that he feels a lot of pressure from all the fame, fortune and success he has had.Nguyen told CNBC’s Kelly Evans that he would rather people spend their time doing more productive things rather than attempt to guide a cartoon bird through pipes to rack up a high score. Still, Nguyen said he doesn’t regret creating the game.The app developer said he has more apps in the works, including a game that has “a guy jumping from building to building.”last_img read more

How Augmented Reality Has Changed Selfies Forever Infographic

first_img Throughout their lifetime, the average millennial will take 25,676 selfies, according to research compiled by eyewear company FramesDirect. Not only that, but millennials usually spend a whopping 54 hours per year taking selfies. Typically, a millennial will take nine selfies every week to either post on social media, snap a vacation shot, send to a significant other or celebrate a birthday.Related: Why AR & VR Are the Need of the HourIt’s clear that selfies have been taken to the next level, and with the help of augmented reality, it’s only getting bigger. In 2015, Snap introduced the first augmented reality filter with “rainbow barfing.” The year after, it amped up its AR levels with the highly popular dog filter. In 2017, the company launched Lens Studio, a desktop application that allows any user to create and submit an AR filter.Of course, Snap’s not the only social media platform tapping into the innovative tech — Instagram’s filters and Selfie Facebook Spaces include AR. Selfies go beyond social media, with their ability to unlock phones or pay for purchases.Related: How Augmented Reality Will Shape the Future of EcommerceTo learn more about how augmented reality is changing selfies forever, check out FramesDirect.com’s infographic below.

The Alliance launched its Image Gently™ campaign in January 2008 to raise awareness of opportunities to reduce radiation dose estimates used in pediatric imaging.“This is an example of how all stakeholders in the medical imaging community can and must work together for the good of our pediatric patients and our profession. This summit and our subsequent agreement to work together, represents a major step forward in ensuring that medical protocols keep pace with rapidly advancing technology and are properly displayed on our CT equipment” said Marilyn Goske, M.D., chair of the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging, past president of the Society for Pediatric Radiology (SPR), and Silverman Chair for Radiology Education, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.“This agreement is a fundamental change in responsibility and accountability for the dose estimates that our children – and actually adults, too – receive during CT examinations,” said Donald Frush, M.D., chair of the American College of Radiology Pediatric Imaging Commission.Currently, dose capture and reporting systems can vary depending on the manufacturer, making comparisons difficult. Also, dose estimates for CT scans can underestimate the radiation dose utilized in pediatric imaging because these estimates are often developed using adult phantoms.“Children are three to five times more sensitive to radiation than adults, yet dose estimates are made using adult-sized phantoms,” said Keith Strauss, M.Sc., of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and director of Radiology Physics and Engineering at Children’s Hospital Boston. “Models need to be developed specifically for estimating dose to children undergoing CT exams utilizing phantoms that more appropriately take into consideration the size, shape and composition of children’s anatomies.”Presenters at the meeting included representatives from Alliance organizations as well as from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and MITA. Medical imaging vendors represented at the meeting were GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Siemens Medical Systems and Toshiba America Medical Systems.For more information: www.imagegently.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a GE Cardiographe Dedicated Cardiac CT Scanner This is a quick walk around of the GE Healthcare Cardiographe dedicated cardiac CT system on display at the… read more Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough explains new advances in CT technologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 13:56Loaded: 1.17%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -13:56 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Travellers to Muslim countries told to do homework

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: C.C Travellers to Muslim countries need to be culturally intelligent, or run the risk of a negative experience for themselves and their hosts, a researcher has advised. Muslim countries are faced with finding a balance between developing their tourism industries and ensuring that their culture is not eroded in the process, senior lecturer Dr Noel Scott of The University of Queensland’s School of Tourism said. This fear of cultural erosion is leading the governments of some Muslim countries to pick and choose the types of tourists that they target in their marketing campaigns.“Tourism is a focus for change in society and I suspect tourism is a leading sector that is being used in Muslim countries to explore issues of how society should develop,” Dr Scott said. Whilst tourism exposed Muslim culture to a wider array of social practices and belief systems, western tourists needed to do their homework before visiting because acceptable behaviour differed from one country to the next. That governments were becoming selective of whom they prefer to visit their country reinforced the need for tourists to understand the nature of Islamic law and respected customs.“Saudi Arabia does not want western tourists to come along and offend local people. They want economic development from tourism, but they are not prepared to compromise their principles to have it,” Dr Scott said.“The more wealthy the country, the more they are able to determine what sort of tourism they want.“Look at the different Muslim countries and you will see people developing tourism differently.”Tourists also needed to understand that Muslim countries were unlikely to be suitable places to go for activities such as sunbathing in skimpy outfits, he continued.“Why do you go on holidays? These are places you go to learn more about the country. You should wear reasonable clothing. It is probably more appropriate for the climate anyway.“If a holiday is about freedom for young people to do whatever they want and they might wear short dresses, perhaps they should think about that before they go. There are other places you can go for that.”Dr Scott is currently researching with colleagues from Minia University in Egypt on visitor experiences at the Pyramids of Giza.last_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter Waldorf Astoria Hotels

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterWaldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by Prime Investors Capital Ltd to operate the luxury hotel within one of the capital’s most prestigious monuments. Admiralty Arch Waldorf Astoria, London will open in 2022, following an extensive ongoing refurbishment program which will restore and protect the landmark’s architectural and historical features.Admiralty Arch was commissioned by King Edward VII in memory of Queen Victoria, and was designed by Sir Aston Webb, who was also responsible for The Mall and main facade at Buckingham Palace. In addition to housing the official residences of the First Sea Lords, Admiralty Arch has served as a centre for clandestine wartime intelligence efforts, a Royal Navy outpost, and as a centre for the UK Government’s Cabinet Office. Following a rigorous and thorough official tender process Prime Investors Capital Ltd outbid 28 institutional bidders from all over the world in order to acquire the 250-year lease of the property in 2015.Since construction of the building was completed in 1910, Admiralty Arch has hosted leading figures of state and society, from Sir Winston Churchill – whose office was based within the arch when he was First Sea Lord of the Admiralty – to author of the James Bond spy novels, Ian Fleming. Admiralty Arch offers views down The Mall to Buckingham Palace, and commanding vistas across Trafalgar Square and Nelson’s Column.Rafael Serrano, CEO Prime Investors Capital Ltd said: “Since 2015 when we acquired Admiralty Arch from the British Government, we have made many decisions that will impact not only the future of the building and the local area, but also the profile of the very heart of London. We have appointed a team of talented experts with the experience and knowledge to capture the spirit of this magnificent building. We have created a detailed plan to transform Admiralty Arch into an extraordinary Hotel, Residences and Private Members Club. And one of the most important decisions we have made is to select and appoint the operator to whom we will entrust the management and running of this hotel. Further to interest and discussions with 12 top luxury hotel brands, we are delighted to announce the creation of Admiralty Arch Waldorf Astoria, London.“The Management of Prime Investors Capital Ltd and Waldorf Astoria hold many things in common: a commitment to enhance the heritage of this remarkable, elegant building; a determination to preserve its sense of place; and the experience needed to provide superb hospitality to discerning guests from London and around the world. As the proud owners of Admiralty Arch, we have every confidence that, together with Waldorf Astoria, we will ensure that this London landmark enters the next chapter of its life in safe hands and maintains its iconic standing in the capital.”Christopher J. Nassetta, president & CEO, Hilton said: “This agreement marries the timeless elegance of Waldorf Astoria with the historic grandeur of one of London’s great monuments. Projects of this calibre are rare, and Admiralty Arch Waldorf Astoria will provide a truly unforgettable hospitality experience when it opens to guests.“Waldorf Astoria has a legacy of protecting and enhancing historical buildings, from our flagship hotel in New York, which is currently undergoing a comprehensive refurbishment to protect the art deco building for future generations, to this incredible property in London. This partnership brings our iconic luxury brand to London’s finest address, and we’re proud to partner with Prime Investors Capital Ltd to introduce Waldorf Astoria to London.”Admiralty Arch Waldorf Astoria will include 96 hotel rooms and suites, and three restaurants. Plans include a rooftop bar with sweeping views across London’s skyline, private meetings and event spaces, as well as a spa. Luxury private residences and an exclusive Private Members Club and other exclusive F&B components will join the hotel within Admiralty Arch.Councillor Robert Davis MBE DL, deputy leader and cabinet member for business, culture and heritage, Westminster City Council said: “I have worked with Prime Investors Capital for a number of years, first on the creation of the Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge and more recently on their extensive plans to restore and refurbish Admiralty Arch into a luxury hotel. This extraordinary project is going to make a huge impact on Central London by opening up to the public an iconic building standing at the end of The Mall and adjacent to Trafalgar Square.“The outstanding team that Prime Investors Capital has assembled – together with a variety of expert advisers – make me confident that Prime Investors Capital has shown the commitment and the vision to ensure that this project will be an enormous success. The hotel will be an important addition to the City of Westminster as well as to London as a whole – at a time when tourism and travel is so important for our country.”Work is already underway to restore the building’s original features, and an internationally celebrated design team is in place, led by Michael Blair and David Mlinaric. Michael Blair’s work includes the restoration and extension of The Ritz, The Connaught and Claridge’s hotels. David Mlinaric’s body of work includes The Royal Opera House, The Victoria & Albert Museum, The National Gallery and the British Residences in London and Paris.Historical interiors expert Andrew Damonte completes the design team.
