Rolls-Royce gets new chief

first_img Rolls-Royce gets new chief KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp BRITISH engine maker, Rolls-Royce has confirmed that the Royal Ahold boss is to become new chief executive as Sir John Rose prepares to retire. John Rishton, who is currently chief executive at the Dutch supermarket group, will take up the post next March when Rose stands down. Rose will leave Rolls-Royce after 26 years, of which he served 14 years as the group’s chief executive.Rishton, who spent four years as chief financial officer at British Airways (BA), will be faced with the tough challenge of driving Rolls-Royce forward amid expected cuts to the defence budget and ongoing problems with its engines.“John [Rishton] has a proven track record as a chief executive of a global company and has a background in aerospace and manufacturing,” said chairman Simon Robertson.Rishton already holds a spot as a non-executive director on Rolls-Royce’s board and is chair of the group’s audit committee. He joined Ahold in 2006 from BA as executive vice-president and was later promoted into the chief executive position.Rishton is to be replaced by Ahold’s chief operating officer, Dick Boer who will take over the chief executive role once Rishton leaves next year. Meanwhile, Ian Strachan will takeover Rishton’s job as audit chair on an interim basis until Rolls-Royce finds a replacement. JOHN RISHTONCHIEF EXECUTIVE, ROLLS-ROYCEDESPITE a five-year posting in the Dutch supermarket industry, John Rishton is no stranger to the auto and aviation sectors having spent the majority of his career at both Ford Europe and British Airways (BA).The newly appointed Rolls-Royce chief executive began his career at Ford in 1979 and held a number of senior positions during his 15-year tenure at the carmaker.Rishton joined BA in 1994 and moving up the ranks, eventually took over the role of chief financial officer. He retained that post for four years until his late 2005 departure for Amsterdam based, Royal Ahold. Rishton officially joined Ahold on 1 January 2006 as the group’s executive vice-president and chief financial officer but was promoted a year later to president and chief executive.That same year Rishton also took up a non-executive director role on Rolls-Royce’s board. In April Rishton was appointed to a second term at the top of Ahold, but tendered his resignation yesterday to return back to his transport roots.

On the outskirts of Zevenhuizen, this house stands as a pure black sculpture in a patchwork of greenhouses, farmlands, and dwellings. At first glance, the slated house looks like a classical barn in the backyard, but upon approach, it unveils a contemporary and sophisticated detailing. The house has been built on a plot in the Zuidplaspolder. The goal of the assignment was to create a modern dwelling that fits in a rural environment. The building is composed of a sober archetypal main form, in which additions and interruptions to the volume are avoided.Save this picture!© Sebastian van DammeSave this picture!© Sebastian van DammeOnly a few perforations have been introduced around the userspace. To strengthen the archetypal shape, the roof surface and facade are made of the same material. The living areas of the house are positioned on the East and South sides. Large openings have been made in the volume to create a strong visual connection with the surrounding garden. This way both the morning and the afternoon sun can be enjoyed. A spacious loft connects the living room with the landing on the bedroom floor. The entrance and service areas are positioned on the West and North sides of the house. Openings have been minimized at this size so that the sober main shape remains strongly visible from the street side.Save this picture!© Sebastian van DammeSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Sebastian van DammeIn the heart of the house, stairs, wardrobe, toilet and fireplace are combined in a central “piece of furniture”. This piece of furniture is made of oak wood forming a striking warm contrast with the dark outside. Fiber cement slates were chosen for the materialisation of the exterior. By applying these slates, a sharp detailing can be applied in which the transition from the facade to the roof can be realized almost seamlessly.Save this picture!© Sebastian van DammeProject gallerySee allShow lessCiti-Gens MSCA Doctoral Training ProgrammeOpportunitiesTGS House / Laercio Fabiano ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Etex ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/941330/house-zevenhuizen-studio-aaan Clipboard Houses CopyHouses•Zevenhuizen, The Netherlands House Zevenhuizen / Studio AAANSave this projectSaveHouse Zevenhuizen / Studio AAANSave this picture!© Sebastian van Damme+ 21Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/941330/house-zevenhuizen-studio-aaan Clipboard The Netherlandslast_img read more

Yellow and red indicate generally higher temperatures. The River Nile is visible as a thin blue line on the main image. The black-and-white inset shows the level of detail available from ECOSTRESS, with the relatively cool Nile River and surrounding vegetation appearing darker. Credit: NASA/JPL-CaltechJust days after its successful installation on the International Space Station, NASA JPL’s newest Earth-observing mission, the ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station (ECOSTRESS), has collected its first science data on Earth’s surface temperature.ECOSTRESS will measure the temperature of plants from space, enabling researchers to determine how much water plants use and to study how droughts affect plant health.The instrument was launched June 29 from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on a SpaceX cargo resupply mission. It rode to orbit in the “trunk” of SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft, which berthed at the station on July 2. On July 5, ground controllers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston extracted ECOSTRESS from the trunk, robotically transferred it to the station’s Japanese Experiment Module – Exposed Facility (JEM-EF) and installed it. After a few days of testing and start-up activities, ECOSTRESS acquired its first-light image on July 9.“Often satellite missions require weeks or months to produce data of the quality that we are already getting from ECOSTRESS,” said the mission’s principal investigator, Simon Hook of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. ECOSTRESS is one of a new class of low-cost, rapid-development NASA science instruments. The ECOSTRESS instrument was launched less than four years after the project was started.The ECOSTRESS team is now checking out the instrument and acquiring preliminary science data, a process expected to take about a month. They have completed an initial calibration of the science data and are now validating the data by comparing them with similar measurements made at ground control sites. When this process is complete, ECOSTRESS will be ready to begin its one-year science mission.JPL built and manages the ECOSTRESS mission for NASA’s Earth Science Division in the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington. ECOSTRESS is an Earth Venture Instrument mission; the program is managed by NASA’s Earth System Science Pathfinder program at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.For more information on ECOSTRESS, visit https://ecostress.jpl.nasa.govFor more information on science activities aboard the space station, visit https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/benefits/research_by_com_campaign Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes 5 recommendedShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community Newslast_img read more
