BHP Billiton pursuit of Potash over

first_img KCS-content BHP Billiton pursuit of Potash over whatsapp GLOBAL mining giant BHP Billiton last night killed off its protracted $39bn (£24bn) pursuit of Potash, the world’s biggest deal this year, and said it would return $4.2bn (£2.6bn) to investors through a share buyback.The move comes after Canada blocked BHP’s bid for the world’s largest fertiliser maker on 3 November and gave BHP a month to demonstrate the takeover would benefit Canada.BHP gave up the fight in its third straight failure to seal a major acquisition under chief executive Marius Kloppers, and bowed to calls from some shareholders for a return of capital, signalling it has limited opportunities for other big takeovers.Kloppers has long said the company would prefer to spend its cash pile on development projects and acquisitions rather than giving it back to shareholders.In a statement released late last night, Kloppers said: “Unfortunately, despite having received all required anti-trust clearances for the offer, we have not been able to obtain clearance under the Investment Canada Act and have accordingly decided to withdraw the offer.”BHP said Ottawa was asking for too many concessions beyond the more than $1bn worth of undertakings the company had already offered as benefits to Canada.BHP said it would book $350m (£217m) in costs for the Potash deal.

Driven by concerns over the economic impact of the coronavirus, the price of gold hit a seven-year high of over $1,600 an ounce last week. Some in the market believe the shiny stuff could breach the $2,000 mark in short order.  With this in mind, it’s understandable if many private investors are thinking of climbing on board. So, let’s look at the arguments for and against buying now. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Why hold gold?Gold is regarded as a safe haven asset — something that tends to be negatively correlated with stock markets. If you believe the market is overly optimistic about finding a quick fix to the virus (not to mention global growth prospects), gold will help diversify your money.Aside from this, gold is tangible. Unlike Bitcoin, it’s also easy to understand, liquid (easy to buy and sell) and hard to steal.This is not to say that gold is without its critics.Reasons to steer clearAside from the possibility that those buying now might be doing so at the worst possible time (i.e. buying ‘the spike’), one argument against holding gold is that it doesn’t generate any income. A better idea would be to buy stocks that pay dividends even through troubled times, or simply sit in cash until the crash happens, pick up shares on the cheap and await the mother of all rallies.These arguments make sense, but they also assume a lot.The ‘dividend argument’ assumes 1) we know in advance which companies will be able to continue returning cash to their owners during/after a crash and 2) we will still have the confidence to buy/hold such stocks when everyone else is selling. Staying in cash until we hit the bottom sounds like a surefire route to riches but only if we know in advance where the ‘bottom’ is. We don’t.  This is why I believe holding at least some gold (perhaps 5%-10% of a portfolio) makes sense, even if this price momentum doesn’t last. Better to regard it as a source of relative stability in times of strife rather than a way of making ‘quick’ money.If you agree, the question is how to go about getting exposure.Here’s what I own…My personal preference is through an exchange-traded commodity fund (ETC) that tracks the gold spot price. The fund I own, for example, is the iShares Physical Gold ETC. It has an ongoing charge of just 0.19%.A second passive fund I own a small amount of is the iShares Gold Producers UCITS ETF. True to its name, this invests in a basket of miners, making it a leveraged play on the price of the shiny stuff. It’s riskier — the share prices of these miners could end up correlating with other stocks in the event of a crash rather than the gold price — but it’s a risk I’m willing to take.Another alternative is to hold companies that have some connection to gold other than digging it up. Within this category, I’d include pawnbroker Ramsdens Holdings (of which I own shares) and H&T, both of them with gold-buying divisions. Again however, there can be no guarantees, especially as the share prices of small companies such as these can be volatile. As always, your best route into gold will depend on a careful analysis of your own risk-tolerance.   Paul Summers owns shares of iShares Physical Gold ETC, iShares Gold Producers UCITS ETF and Ramsdens Holdings.

Convention makes Thurgood Marshall, Pauli Murray, Florence Li Tim-Oi permanent…

first_img Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Youth Minister Lorton, VA Tags Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Both houses of the convention agreed July 13 to bypass (via Resolution A066) the normal expectation that people would not be added to the church’s Lesser Feasts and Fasts calendar until at least two generations have passed.(“Lesser Feasts and Fasts” is a collection of proper collects, lessons and psalms for the Eucharist on each of the weekdays of Lent, weekdays of Easter season and each of the lesser feasts of the church year. It is used in addition to the major feasts and saints included in the Book of Common Prayer.)All three people have been on the calendar of saints since the 2009 General Convention added them on a trial basis. Normally they would have been permanently added at a future convention, but none of the calendars on which they were listed passed convention in 2012 or 2015.Resolution A066 was crafted in light of the trajectory of movement on Resolution A065 to authorize a news version of “Lesser Feasts and Fasts 2018” for trial use over the next three years. The action ensures that Marshall, Murray and Tim-Oi remain on the church’s calendar regardless of what the next meeting of convention in 2021 decides about the 2018 edition of “Lesser Feasts and Fasts.”– The Rev.

And corrected. Thank you. July 19, 2018 at 6:31 pm In the body of this article, Florence Li Tim-Oi is referred to as Tim-Oi, while the other two are referred to as Marshall and Murray. This is grammatically wrong, as her surname/family name. Tim-Oi is her Chinese given name (Cantonese pronunciation). In Chinese usage, the family name precedes the given name. In Hong Kong usage, the English given name is appended at the front of the Chinese name, resulting in the family name ending up in the middle of the full name. Thus, the article should properly referred to Marshall, Murray, and Li (or alternately Thurgood, Pauli, and Florence, or Thurgood, Pauli, and Tim-Oi).

Private donation causes problems for AOL

Writing in Internet World magazine Stuart Lauchlan reports on a charitable gift by America Online’s (AOL) Chief Executive that has caused problems.AOL’s CEO Steve Case and his wife Jean have made a donation of $8m to a school which is a division of a church that claims to “cure” homosexuals. While Lauchlan accepts that “the Cases have every right to give away their money to anyone they like,” he argues that it is “hypocrisy” for AOL to put its sign-up CD-ROMs “onto the front page of gay publications such as Attitude and Gay Times, in order to encourage members of the high-spending, IT-savvy gay community to sign up and boost its revenues.” Lauchlan notes that “an AOL spokeswoman said [the donation] did not come from the $125m charitable Case Foundation, but was a personal gift from the Cases themselves.”Visit Internet World.

Library expansion causes change in security measures

It makes for a very effective delivery,” Koelker said.Students leaving the library late at night can use Froggie Five-0, call campus police and ask for an escort or use the campus shuttle map to find when and where the shuttle is located to get home safely.“We try to be here and be helpful to contribute to student safety,” Koelker said.

Seniors Speak Up about life lessons

first_imgLinkedin Student survives deadly ski accident Welcome TCU Class of 2025 printFive seniors were nominated to speak up about lessons they’ve learned during their time at TCU as part of Senior Speak Up Tuesday night.Topics for Senior Speak Up ranged from the more serious life lessons one student learned from her her late mother, to letting personal passion be a lifetime occupation, to life as a non-traditional student.Senior Ryker Thompson talked about how him losing the SGA Presidency opened up options for him to follow his passion for diversity.Senior Strategic Communication major Madeline Peña spoke up on dry shampoo and realizing her overuse of dry shampoo directly correlated with trying to cover up pain in her personal life.“It’s a good thing when used in moderation but it’s a symbol of how we can cover things up in our lives that are harder to talk about,” said Peña. “It’s also a symbol of being able to clean things up and being able to condition, and being able to talk about the things that are hard.”Senior Year Experience Director Chuck Dunning said stories like Peña’s are not uncommon for this event.“Often the stories that are told by our students are: unexpected things happen and you can try to plan everything out but the biggest lessons that you will learn along the way are going to be those that you don’t expect,” said Dunning.Dunning said embracing the harder, unplanned experiences is a huge part of what it takes to get the most out of the experience TCU has provided.Senior speakers are nominated in the fall semester by faculty or peers, then have to submit one or two ideas of what they’d want to speak up about to a selection committee. The event is annual, so any rising seniors who are interested in participating in the 2018 Senior Speak Up should speak up about their interest to their faculty.

Saint Philip the Apostle: Together In Mission, an Update

first_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Make a comment Fr. Joe, Fr. Dennis and the staff at St. Philip the Apostle Church would like to express their thanks to all of the generous parishioners who have already signed up to participate in the 2012 Together in Mission program. Three weeks ago, the church was privileged to hear from four individuals from San Miguel School in Watts: Maryann Reynosa, the Principal; Brenda Torres, the Vice Principal; Tom Beck, the School Board Chair and Doris Dave, the first grade teacher.All four individuals spoke about their experience with the Together in Mission program and how it has provided a Catholic presence to many families in the Watts area who otherwise would not have had this opportunity. Due to the faithful contributions in 2011, St. Philip the Apostle Church has been able, for the first time in a long while, to exceed its 2011 pledge goal of $106,999.00. The church expects to receive a check from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in the amount of $7,674.53. This money is being used to provide support to St. Philip the Apostle School families, San Miguel School, Detention Ministries as well as to provide additional assistance to the needy.The church pledge goal in 2012 is $105,296.90. If any parishioners did not make a pledge, and would now like to do so, envelopes are available in the vestibule areas and from the Parish Center office. Please do not hesitate to drop them off in the collection basket and remember that this is a restricted collection. All money raised will be used for no other purpose.Saint Philip the Apostle Catholic Church, 151 S. Hill Avenue, Pasadena, (626) 793-0693 or visit www.stphiliptheapostle.org.

There was pre-existing knowledge of flood risks at the hospital which were not acted upon. Quite apart from that, the report at the second and third paragraphs of the summary on page 13 shows that the first flood affecting the new building in July 2013 was a repeat mirror incident of a flood which occurred in 2009 during the actual construction of the new building. In other words what happened in July 2013 had happened before in 2009 but the risk was ignored thus leading to the July 2013 flood being allowed to happen. In other words the HSE knew there was a problem in 2009 but by not acting on it allowed the disastrous July 2013 flood to happen. Basically in both 2009 and July 2013 the culvert pipe was blocked and water could not get away and instead flooded the hospital site.It is also the case as identified at page 34 of the report that the HSE did not take sufficient steps to stop storm water entering the site from the public road (which subsequently was a serious problem during the second major flood in August 2014)Even if one were to forgive the mistakes made that led to the first flood of the new building in July 2013, this report now establishes that the HSE ignored the Councils concerns raised with the HSE in 2013 after the first flood and did not act upon those concerns, a failing on the part of the HSE which almost certainly could have prevented the 2014 flood.The report at pages 24-33 documents the fact that when the HSE applied for planning permission in 2013 after the July 2013 flood for a new pipe structure, Donegal County Council planners and roads engineers made it clear that the 2013 planning application was not properly dealing with all of the flood risks which existed above the hospital. However they were ignored and the HSE engineers Tobins replied saying that they were only contracted by the HSE to deal with the design and installation of an overflow pipe and “it was not their remit to address potential flooding around the remainder of the hospital”, in other words they declined to deal with the other flooding risks identified by Donegal County Council planners.What this establishes clearly is that Council planners were ignored in 2013 when they raised additional flood risks with the HSE. These identified risks then materialised in August 2014 when the second flood occurred.This report establishes clearly that the HSE fid not comply with planning conditions for the new A&E building at Letterkenny General Hospital which might have prevented the first major flood in July 2013 and then even after the first major flood had occurred in July 2013, the HSE ignored warnings from Donegal County Council planners about the risks of further serious flooding which in the event then allowed the second flood to occur in August 2014.I  am shocked and appalled at how the HSE have behaved in relation to the Letterkenny Hospital site which has allowed 2 major floods to occur. This is wholly unacceptable and I will now be writing to the Minister for Health calling for a full explanation of why the HSE acted in this way and requesting that he hold those responsible to account.LGH Flood Report for Members March 2015 Need for issues with Mica redress scheme to be addressed raised in Seanad also Dail hears questions over design, funding and operation of Mica redress schemelast_img read more
