Vedanta buys 10.4pc stake in Cairn India

first_imgTuesday 19 April 2011 10:53 am Vedanta buys 10.4pc stake in Cairn India Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼center_img India-focused miner Vedanta Resources has acquired a 10.4 per cent stake worth $1.5bn (£921m) in Cairn India, its takeover target that remains subject to approval from the Indian government.Vedanta bought the 200m-share stake from Petronas, the Malaysian state oil company for 331 rupees (£4.52) a share, reflecting a 1.6 per cent discount to Cairn India’s closing price on Monday. Its $9.6bn proposed deal to acquire Cairn, the Indian oil and gas assets of the UK’s Cairn Energy is designed to give Vedanta a slice of India’s oil reserves and exposure to the surging demand for energy.Vedanta, through Indian subsidiary Sese Goa, has made an open offer to Cairn India’s minority investors to acquire up to a 20 per cent stake in Cairn India. The offer launched on April 11 and closes on April 30.Vedanta and Cairn Energy have extended the deadline to seal the deal to May 20 after they failed to get the approval from the Indian government within the previous deadline of April 15.Petronas sold its entire 14.9 per cent stake in Cairn India. The remaining 4.5 per cent was sold to foreign portfolio investors, sources told Reuters – but the additional ten per cent boost to Vedanta’s stake in Cairn India will boost Vedanta’s takeover case and make it easier to finalise the deal.The deal has been delayed by a dispute over royalty payments by Cairn India’s partner, state-run Oil and Natural Gas.ONGC, which has a 30 per cent holding in the Cairn-operated Rajasthan fields in western India, pays 100 per cent of the royalties. India’s oil ministry has been pushing to share the royalty burden between ONGC and Cairn India.Both Cairn and Vedanta have opposed that move. Any changes in the royalty structure will impact valuations and may jeopardise the deal, analysts have said.

Is the FTSE 100 index heading for a record high?

first_imgIs the FTSE 100 index heading for a record high? Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The FTSE 100 index began on 3 January 1984 with a base level of 1,000. And it reached its highest-ever closing level on 22 May 2018 at 7,877 after hitting an intra-day peak of 7,903 on the same day.The FTSE 100 looks aheadAs we all know, the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020 caused the index to crash. And Covid-19 has been suppressing business activity in many sectors all year. However, a wave of optimism and hope for the future has met recent vaccine development announcements. And the FTSE 100 is responding well to the news. Although, it’s taken a breather and eased back a bit today.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…At the beginning of November, the index stood near 5,655 but it’s risen to around 6,340 as I write. I admit there’s a still a long way to go before it hits new highs but I reckon the big-cap index has picked up a tailwind and could travel far.Indeed, many of the largest constituent companies have cyclical businesses that will likely recover if Covid-19 fades. I’m thinking of oil companies like Royal Dutch Shell and BP. And banks like HSBC Holdings and Lloyds Banking Group. As well as enterprises like mining company BHP, food service group Compass, and housebuilder Persimmon. I’m tempted to buy shares in all those companies right now.Although the new vaccines probably won’t have an immediate effect on the pandemic, the stock market looks ahead. And in six or nine months from now, we could see improvements in trading for some of the UK’s battered businesses. And any further positive announcements relating to medical breakthroughs could help to drive the index higher in the meantime.The big rotationIndeed, the recent rotation from Covid-winning stocks into Covid-battered stocks by investors has been striking. And positioning a portfolio for economic recovery strikes me as being a good idea.But I admit it can be hard to pull the trigger and buy shares before seeing evidence of a recovery in the underlying business. However, successful investors like Warren Buffett tend to buy stocks when they are out of favour with investors and when the business outlook is uncertain. That’s because there’s a better chance of picking up stocks selling at reasonable valuations. And buying at good-value prices can lead to decent returns when a recovery in the underlying business gains traction.I think it’s as important as ever for me to focus on my watch list to identify opportunities in the stock market right now. After a long period of uncertainty, we are getting better general news flow now. Indeed, the US presidential race is over, the writing could be on the wall for the Covid-19 pandemic, and the tortuous Brexit negotiations will likely draw to a close soon. I think there’s a lot of potential for the FTSE 100 to exceed its previous record high, perhaps as soon as during 2021. And I don’t want to miss out by sitting on my hands now! There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Kevin Godbold | Tuesday, 17th November, 2020 Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned.

Daniele Heller is a 20-year-old from Clermont who drives a speedy 2013 Nissan 370Z. Both men had a plan for the day, and it did not involve the other.Little did they know their worlds were going to collide on a little stretch of Florida Turnpike one mile from the Ocoee/Apopka exit they call mile marker 270.5.Heller was driving his 2013 Nissan 370Z southbound on the turnpike. He was going real fast, and perhaps he has heard Sammy Hagar’s “I can’t drive 55” song one time too many.It was approximately 8:30AM on Tuesday when Trooper Andrew Pupo of the Florida Highway Patrol was sitting in his cruiser observing traffic going northbound. But then Pupo looked southbound and witnessed a spectacle that must have looked like an outtake from Smokey and The Bandit. According to Pupo’s report, he visually estimated that Heller’s Nissan and an unidentified red vehicle were traveling at around 125-130 mph. He clocked Heller at 132.2mph as they blew by him. The two vehicles were presumably racing.The speed limit on the turnpike is 70mph.Pupo began pursuit of the two vehicles, while he witnessed them going in and out of lanes and passing every vehicle they encountered.Guivas was driving his garbage truck southbound ahead of Heller. According to witnesses, Heller attempted to pass the garbage truck on the left shoulder, but lost control and hit the center barrier wall. Heller then re-directed his Nissan back into the southbound lanes and collided with Guivas’ garbage truck.Despite the significant damage to the Nissan, Heller suffered only minor injuries.He was transported to the Orlando Regional Medical Center and treated, then arrested and booked into the Orange County Jail on charges of reckless driving. The red vehicle was never identified, but it is presumed to have won the race.Guivas, it is presumed, got back into his garbage truck and continued his work day.

Imprisoned PA activist: ‘time to speak’ on water crisis

first_imgArroyo is an environmental activistimprisoned at the State Correctional Institution–Frackville in Pennsylvania.On Sept. 19, 21, 24 and 27, prisoners at the State Correctional Institution—Frackville experienced four incidents with respect to the water crisis. Drinking contaminated toxic water, an overwhelming majority of the inmate population experienced bouts of diarrhea, vomiting, sore throats and dizziness. This isn’t and cannot be construed as an isolated incident.The SCI—Frackville staff passed out bottled spring water after the inmate population had been subjected to drinking the toxic contaminated water for hours, without ever being notified to refrain from consuming the tap water. This is as insidious as it gets!SCI—Frackville’s administration is acutely aware of the toxic water contamination crisis and has adopted an in-house patterned practice of intentionally failing to notify the inmate population to refrain from drinking tap water until we [the inmates] discover it for ourselves through the effects of diarrhea, vomiting, sore throats, etc.In general, the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections knows it has a water crisis on its hands. The top agencies, like the Department of Environmental Protection and the Environmental Protection Agency, know about this “open secret” and have conspired to deliberately ignore most, if not all, of the inmates’ official complaints.Pennsylvania has received four drinking water violations from the EPA. The underlying problem is money, money and more money.The DEP expects to receive 30 percent in drinking water grants, split between 30 percent for air and 25 percent for superfund clean up. This leaves us with 43 inspectors, but, to meet the EPA mandates, we need at the least 85 full-time inspectors. This means Pennsylvania inspectors have double the workload, and this has resulted in some systems not being inspected.Logically, the larger systems get routine inspections, and systems that have chronic problems get inspected, but smaller and rural systems like ours may not be inspected because we are the minority that society doesn’t care about. Persona non grata!Many Pennsylvania taxpayers would be surprised to know that our infrastructure is older than that of Flint, Mich., with its toxic water crisis. Something is very wrong in our own backyard, and the legislative body wants to keep a tight lid on it. But how long can this secret be contained before we experience an outbreak of the worst kind?Silence no more: It is time to speak. I could not stress the urgency enough. We need to take action by notifying our Pennsylvania state legislators, make them accountable to the tax paying citizens and highlight Pennsylvania DOC’s water crisis to assist those of us who are cornered and forced to drink toxic, contaminated water across the Pennsylvania state prisons.There’s no telling how many of us inmates have contracted the waterborne disease polycythemia vera by drinking this toxic contaminated water for years without recourse to medical diagnosis or treatment. The Pennsylvania DOC refuses to test the inmate population, in spite of the ongoing water crisis.We all know what would happen if the inmate population discovered that they had contracted the disease. Obviously, it wouldn’t be economically feasible for the DOC medical department to pay the cost to treat all the inmates.If you want to obtain a goal you’ve never obtained, you have to transcend by doing something you’ve never done before. Let’s not procrastinate; let’s unify in solidarity and take action before an outbreak becomes inevitable. There’s no logic to action, afterwards, if we could have avoided the unnecessary catastrophe in the first place.Let’s govern ourselves in the right direction by contacting and filing complaints to our legislative body, the DEP, EPA and their higher-ups, etc. In the mountains of rejection, you are our yes.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Indiana Cold Could Affect Maturing Wheat

first_img Facebook Twitter Indiana Cold Could Affect Maturing Wheat Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Cold Could Affect Maturing Wheat SHARE Cold affecting wheatRyan MartinCold weather around Indiana is putting wheat, forage and fruit crops at risk of freeze damage and the State Climate Office at Purdue University says there is a possibility of low overnight temperatures throughout the next several weeks. HAT chief meteorologist Ryan Martin explains just how cold it might get this week.“There were a lot of people who complained about what went on this weekend with the much colder air and the nasty weather in general. Take Sunday and Monday and multiply them by a factor of two and that’s probably what we’ve got this weekend. Temperatures will be way below normal and we may have some parts of the state struggling to get out of the 30’s for highs on Saturday. That’s not everywhere but that’s the kind of cold air we’ve got coming.”He says moisture will move back in Friday night into Saturday morning.“And I think air is going to be cold enough that at least over the northern quarter to third of the state we may have to watch for this coming as a bit of light snow, wet snow, and with anywhere from a few hundredths to two-tenths of an inch of liquid, I can’t say that it won’t stick in some spots. So be aware of that overnight Friday into Saturday. Farther south liquid precipitation again will be a few hundredths to about a tenth of an inch.”The cold comes just as much of the state’s winter wheat crop has “greened up” and is starting to joint, according to Shaun Casteel, Purdue Extension wheat specialist.“Plants from tillering stage to Feekes 5, can withstand quite cold temperatures in the 12-15-degree range without substantial damage to yield,” Casteel said.More mature plants, however, could be at greater risk.“At the jointing stage, Feekes 6-7, the temperatures that can cause damage are at the 24-degree mark and below,” Casteel said. “If you’re in that range for more than a couple of hours, the concern is beyond leaf tip burn.”Providing adequate nutrients can help wheat plants cope with the cold, Casteel said.“Wheat that has been top-dressed with nitrogen and taken it up fare better than those plants with nitrogen deficits,” he said. “Adequate nitrogen in the plant is almost like an antifreeze agent.”Casteel said freeze damage might not be apparent for 7-10 days.“You have to let the plants grow out a little bit before determining what damage has been done,” Casteel said. “If you are looking at yellow and brown leaves, that is mostly cosmetic and won’t cause significant yield damage at the current growth stages. Under more severe conditions, the growing points die and the lower stems split or bend. That could lead to moderate or severe yield loss.”Extension forage specialist Keith Johnson advised producers to monitor their alfalfa and cool season grass crops carefully.“If the weather forecasts are correct and we are looking at the possibility of early morning temperatures in the mid-20s for several days, the next few days could be problematic,” he said. “There could certainly be some vegetative burn and a reduction in early season yield.”Johnson said forage crops that were harvested on time last fall would likely be in better shape to handle the cold stress.“That’s why we tell people alfalfa should be harvested no later than Sept. 10,” he said. “The plant needs time to build up its energy reserves before winter dormancy.”Many of the state’s fruit crops have already started to develop and are more vulnerable to freeze damage, said Peter Hirst, Extension tree fruit specialist.“In more southern areas of the state, fruit crops have developed more and are at greater risk of cold damage,” Hirst said. “Peaches in the southern areas are at or past bloom and we expect to see significant amounts of damage to flowers. But right now there should be enough surviving flowers to still produce a crop.”Apple trees are not as developed as peaches and could survive the cold snap in better shape.“While there will be some flowers killed by the cold, we are still expecting full apple crops,” Hirst said.Source: Purdue News Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Apr 7, 2016 Previous articleDuPont, China, Agree on GMO Seed PartnershipNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubanklast_img read more

New US-Mexico-Canada Agreement Reached to Replace NAFTA

first_img Facebook Twitter New US-Mexico-Canada Agreement Reached to Replace NAFTA In a tweet early Monday morning, President Trump announced that a new trade deal has been reached with Canada. It will be added into the deal already reached with the Mexico and named the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA.Late last night, our deadline, we reached a wonderful new Trade Deal with Canada, to be added into the deal already reached with Mexico. The new name will be The United States Mexico Canada Agreement, or USMCA. It is a great deal for all three countries, solves the many……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2018 By Eric Pfeiffer – Oct 1, 2018 ….deficiencies and mistakes in NAFTA, greatly opens markets to our Farmers and Manufacturers, reduces Trade Barriers to the U.S. and will bring all three Great Nations together in competition with the rest of the world. The USMCA is a historic transaction!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2018United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland issued a joint statement regarding the deal:“Today, Canada and the United States reached an agreement, alongside Mexico, on a new, modernized trade agreement for the 21st Century: the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). USMCA will give our workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses a high-standard trade agreement that will result in freer markets, fairer trade and robust economic growth in our region. It will strengthen the middle class, and create good, well-paying jobs and new opportunities for the nearly half billion people who call North America home.“We look forward to further deepening our close economic ties when this new agreement enters into force.“We would like to thank Mexican Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo for his close collaboration over the past 13 months.”Long-thought as the sticking point in the talks with Canada, the U.S. will see improved dairy trade. Business Insider reports Canada will allow American farmers more access to its dairy market, raising quotas on the amount of U.S. dairy that can come into the country and eliminating a pricing system for Class 7 that made it more difficult for U.S. farmers to enter the market. Many believe the change in dairy policy by Canada was part of a deal to save the Chapter 19 dispute mechanism sought by Canada.Trump targeted the dairy issue before he officially announced the intention to renegotiate NAFTA. The access level is reportedly identical to what Canada agreed to give up as part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership that Trump withdrew the U.S. from early in his presidency.The National Corn Growers Association President Lynn Chrisp today released the following statement after an announcement that the United States, Canada, and Mexico reached an agreement in principle on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), renamed the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).“Farmers across the country have been closely following NAFTA negotiations and reminding the administration of its promise to ‘do no harm’ to agriculture.”“NAFTA has been an unequivocal success story for American agriculture, opening markets that since enactment have become vitally important to U.S. corn farmers, and providing certainty to farmers and the rural economy. We applaud USTR for reaching a new agreement and look forward to thoroughly evaluating it to determine if it continues to benefit American agriculture.”ASA President and soybean grower from Keota, Iowa, John Heisdorffer said, “Our soybean harvest this year is large, and we are facing great uncertainty in China, so a modernized NAFTA is timely and beneficial for our farmers and rural communities.”He added, “With USMCA, KORUS, and other agreements in sight, we are hopeful that a negotiated solution to the China tariffs could be in sight.” SHAREcenter_img Previous articlePurdue President says Ag Tech Innovation is Essential to the Future of AgricultureNext articleAgriculture Awaits New Farm Bill as 2014 Bill Expires Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News New US-Mexico-Canada Agreement Reached to Replace NAFTA SHARElast_img read more

Journalists again targets of violence

first_imgNews January 7, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists again targets of violence MontenegroEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts MontenegroEurope – Central Asia News Montenegro : RSF and other leading press freedom organisations condemn the continued judicial persecution of Jovo Martinović Help by sharing this information to go further Update – 16/12/2014A court in Niksic sentenced five people to jail terms ranging from 11 to 15 months on 10 December for physically attacking Lidija Nikcevic, a journalist with the daily newspaper Dan, on 4 January 2014. They included “Narcis” Zeljko Miletic, the owner of a funeral parlour, whose controversial practices Nikcevic criticized in an article. After initially claiming she had been the victim of an attempted robbery, the police finally said Miletic organized the attack. He was given a 15-month sentence. All five pleaded not guilty.—-Reporters Without Borders is worried by a decline in the climate for journalists in Montenegro, with a violent attack on a newspaper reporter in Niksic, the second largest city, two days ago, and an explosion outside a newspaper in the capital, Podgorica, on 26 December.There is so far no sign of anyone being held responsible for this violence and this is unacceptable. Reporters Without Borders calls on the authorities to guarantee the safety of journalists and bring the perpetrators to justice.The victim of the attack in Niksic was Lidija Nikcevic of the newspaper Dan. She was repeatedly struck on the head outside the newspaper’s office on 4 January, sustaining injuries that resulted in her being hospitalized for 24 hours.An explosive device was set off outside the headquarters of the Vijesti daily newspaper, beneath the windows of its editor, Mihailo Jovovic, on the evening of 26 December. Fifteen employees were present at the time but none of them was hurt.“Impunity for violence against media personnel is the rule in Montenegro,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The tolerance that the justice system shows towards those who attack journalists is unacceptable. “We call on the authorities, and in particular Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic, to condemn this violence and to do whatever it takes to ensure that those responsible are brought to justice and to establish a safe climate for journalists, which is necessary to guarantee freedom of information.”The past year has been a trying one for media freedom in Montenegro. In August, a TNT charge exploded in the courtyard of Tufik Softic, an investigative journalist based in Berane who works for Vijesti and the Monitor magazine. Monitor editor Milka Tadic-Mijovic received particularly alarming threats in the course of 2013. She was the target of an all-out hate campaign and received extremely vulgar SMS messages. Her attempts to get the police to take action were unsuccessful.The situation for media personnel in Montenegro has been worrying for several years. Journalists working for Vijesti, Dan and Monitor are often the targets of threats or direct attacks. Media personnel have been attacked with impunity ever since Dan editor Dusko Jovanovic’s murder in Podgorica in 2004.Montenegro is ranked 113th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Photo credit: novosti Newscenter_img Organisation November 11, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Montenegro News June 7, 2021 Find out more March 30, 2021 Find out more Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says RSF_en Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics”last_img read more
