BHP Billiton fails to impress Canadian province over Potash bid

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL KCS-content BHP Billiton fails to impress Canadian province over Potash bid CANADA’S Saskatchewan province has opposed BHP Billiton’s hostile bid for Potash Corp – prompting the minering giant to offer more concessions on tax revenue to get the $39bn (£25bn) deal approved.Canadian officials have the final decision on whether to approve the deal and some analysts said the tough line taken by Saskatchewan appeared to be part of the negotiating process.“I think it’s wrangling rather than anything more serious. There’s a lot that BHP is willing to do in order to ensure that this deal is a success,” said Evolution analyst Charles Kernot.The Canadian province said talks had broken down with BHP after the miner failed to meet its demands.BHP, the world’s biggest mining company, offered Saskatchewan only a fraction of the C$3bn (£1.8bn) over 10 years that the province is seeking to make up for expected revenue losses, the province said in a statement.Saskatchewan will now give the bid an unfavourable review later this week, a source close to the matter said, possibly leading to the Canadian government quashing the deal. “BHP Billiton is confident it can address this concern and, in this regard, is prepared to make commitments which go beyond the requirements of prevailing Canadian legislation that should effectively address the tax loss concerns of the province,” the miner said.

Publishing details of its corporate tax reform programme, the Treasury said controlled foreign company (CFC) tax should only be levied on profits that are artificially diverted away from the UK, and that it is not designed to catch a firm’s commercial offshore operations in the UK tax net. The proposal was published alongside plans for a reduction in corporation tax to 24 per cent from 28 per cent, by reducing it by one per cent a year starting in April 2011.The proposals are designed to simplify the CFC tax regime, which currently levies tax on profits UK companies make overseas and which many businesses have criticised as being overly complicated and unfair. Several firms, among them United Business Media, the advertising agency WPP, pharmaceutical giant Shire and Henderson Group, have in the last year moved their tax base to Ireland citing CFC as the main reasons for doing so. Ireland also has a lower rate of corporation tax at 12 per cent.Toby Ryland of chartered accountants Blick Rothenberg said while the discussion paper was a step forward business had been asking for clarity for several years without success. He added given it would take at least six months for any concrete proposals to be put forward, and a year before draft legislation, the uncertainty would remain regarding the CFC meaning businesses “may still be tempted to move out of the UK”.But Chris Sanger, head of tax policy at Ernst & Young said UK companies would be “breathing a collective sigh of relief.” “The proposals have ruled out a restriction on interest, helping to ensure that the UK remains a stable environment for companies to invest in. It will also take the UK one step further forward to the coalition’s pledge of making the UK the most competitive corporate tax system in the G20,” he said. The government said it would introduce more targeted rules in 2012 but that a package of interim improvements would be introduced as early as next year.

I’m beginning to think it is. I like to buy bombed-out FTSE 100 stocks as much as the next contrarian, but I have to draw the line at these serial flops. Every time I reckoned Barclays (LSE: BARC), HSBC Holdings (LSE: HSBA) and Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) were about to bounce back, they let me down again.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…All three have been hit hard by the pandemic, and have struggled to recover. Measured over six months, Barclays and HSBC are both down around 40%, and Barclays is down 50%. They can’t blame all their misfortunes on Covid-19 either.I’d beware of these FTSE 100 stocksI’ve been wondering what the world’s greatest investor Warren Buffett would make of the UK banks right now. He isn’t averse to holding banking stocks, provided they are based in the US. Wells Fargo, US Bancorp and Bank of New York Mellon number among the top 10 holdings of his investment vehicle Berkshire Hathaway. He has spent recent months hoovering up shares in Bank of America.However, I reckon Warren Buffett would struggle to justify buying a stake in FTSE 100 stocks Barclays, Lloyds or HSBC, even though all three FTSE 100 stocks are dirt-cheap right now.Barclays has a price-to-book value of just 0.3, where 1 is usually seen as fair value. Lloyds stands at 0.4, and HSBC at 0.5. These are fat discounts. So why do I think Buffett would steer clear? His old saying applies here: “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price”. The prices look wonderful, but the companies don’t. I wouldn’t even describe them as fair.Lloyds is directly exposed to the fortunes of the UK, whose economy has fallen fastest among the major economies, and has Brexit to deal with as well. HSBC faces an even bigger challenge, as it is caught in the middle of the US-China face-off. I would tread carefully with both. Of the three FTSE 100 stocks, it may just be possible to make a positive case for Barclays, whose investment bank has been going strong.Warren Buffett would be waryAt least these FTSE 100 stocks have a healthy capital position, thanks to provisions made after the financial crisis. So that’s something.I have another worry about buying UK banks. Their balance sheets are so sprawling, you don’t know what you are getting. As Warren Buffett said: “Never invest in a business you cannot understand.” Most private investors have little hope of understanding what they get when buying Barclays, HSBC and Lloyds. They are effectively crossing their fingers.All three big FTSE 100 stocks trade much lower than a decade ago. That reminds me of another famous Warren Buffett saying: “Rule No. 1: Never lose money. Rule No. 2: Never forget rule No.1”.Investors have been losing money on Barclays, HSBC and Lloyds for around 15 years. That dismal run will take some turning around.

A war of words on the eve of Typhoon Hagibis hitting the Rugby World Cup

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Preparing: International Stadium Yokohama gets ready for the typhoon (James Crombie/Inpho) A war of words on the eve of Typhoon Hagibis hitting the Rugby World CupFriday became a day of vocal jostling, as statements burst out of the Scotland, Japan, Italy and World Rugby camps about the issue of cancelled Rugby World Cup games. It all started when Scottish Rugby Union CEO Mark Dodson spoke on BBC Radio 4, voicing his concerns that his side would become “collateral damage for a decision that was taken in haste”.He would speak again, but not before others gave their view. Many chose today to make one final comment before monstrous Typhoon Hagibis silences the chatter.The dangerous weather event is expected to bring record-breaking winds and rain, with the Japan Meteorological Agency expecting winds of over 110mph near its centre and gusts of over 150mph. It is being advised that people stay indoors, stock up on supplies and ensure devices are charged, should they need to urgently contact anyone.So Scotland and Japan are set to spend a day holed up in Yokohama and Tokyo respectively, waiting to find out if their vital Test – that will decide which of the two progresses to the quarter-finals – actually goes ahead on Sunday.Related: What to do in a TyphoonRugby World Cup organisers had already cancelled England versus France and Italy versus New Zealand ahead of the typhoon making landfall on Saturday afternoon. Should there be too much danger, damage, or potential for either, and Japan and Scotland cannot play on Sunday, their fixture will go down as a 0-0 draw. Japan will go through; Scotland go packing.Yesterday, with Italy on their way home, the great Sergio Parisse voiced his view that had the All Blacks needed the points, the tournament organisers would find a way to squeeze a game in for them.It all escalated from there, beginning with Dodson. He said on the radio: “My point is that World Rugby will be listening to what is happening around the world – I think opinion on social media is rising all the time about the injustice of this.“I feel for our Italian friends as well, they had no participation in any of the decisions and they are on their way home already, and my view is that we’re not going to let Scotland be the collateral damage for a decision that was taken in haste.”Keen to play: Japan’s Jamie Joseph (Getty Images)Next up was Japan coach Jamie Joseph, who named his side to play the Scots (should the game be on) but was not happy with any suggestion his charges were pumped for a call-off. He said: “We have played and won three Test matches and that’s put us in the best position in our pool. I’d like to remind everybody it hasn’t been a fluke. It’s been a lot of hard work by a lot of people.”Soon he added: “The key difference here between us and Scotland is that we are driven and supported by the whole country. My team is motivated by achieving something that is great, and not by avoiding an embarrassment.”Like Joseph, Scotland’s Gregor Townsend has the hard job of keeping a Test side certain a game is going ahead, while stuck in a hotel. Both want to play rugby if possible on Sunday. But whilst announcing his own team, Townsend was drawn in.“I did see Jamie’s comments,” he said with a smile. “We know it wouldn’t be an embarrassment to lose to Japan, we know they are an excellent side and we will have to play very well to win.“I had a good laugh about (the comments). You may know coaches use press conference to put messages out and get a response. Sometimes you don’t get one.” With two Saturday games cancelled and Scotland and Japan set to be locked away, the rhetoric has intensifiedcenter_img Both sides say they genuinely believe the game will be on. Away from the mics, there is a sense of sunny optimism about some of the Scots. There were yet more views to come in front of recorders, though.Only the beginning: People in Tokyo on Friday (Getty Images)Next up was Italy boss Conor O’Shea. Talking to The Telegraph, he said: “Sport is sport for a reason. It is unpredictable. We didn’t get the opportunity to take on the All Blacks, the Brazil of rugby, for a chance to go through ourselves. If there should be games cancelled on Sunday and re-arranged, that’s not right. We must have consistency in that regard.”In front of the press later on in the same day, Dodson would not be pulled towards O’Shea’s view, instead saying that he had to do his best for Scotland, because they “believe that we are being timed out in this competition, and being timed out is not a comfortable place to be”.They have spoken to two legal minds, with one solidifying their view that there is wiggle room with any agreement they signed pre-tournament. He also doubled-down on the view that they had triumphed in the court of public opinion. But, he cautioned, they were looking for compromise, co-operation, calm discussion.Dodson gave a suggestion. He feels that although playing on Sunday is the best thing for everyone and there is hope that will happen, holding teams where they are, in Tokyo and Yokohama, for another 24 hours would work if it’s off.Related: A question of integrity at the Rugby World CupThen he added a kicker. “I want to say this. On the record. I’m convinced the World Rugby and the Japanese authority are doing everything they possibly can to get this game on, on (Sunday). But if their best endeavours fail for whatever reason, that’s when we have an issue. Then it becomes out of our control.“But what we want to do today, before the weekend, is give people a maximum amount of time to think about it and to look at the optics of this and to make the sensible change for everyone.”Big point: Japan Meteorological Agency forecast division director Yasushi Kajihara (Getty Images)The biggest sound was yet to come though. World Rugby proved that Dodson was right, they had been listening. And they wanted to be heard too. They released a statement condemning the Scots’ public words.The statement went: “It is disappointing that the Scottish Rugby Union should make such comments at a time when we are doing everything we can to enable all Sunday’s matches to take place as scheduled, and when there is a real and significant threat to public safety owing to what is predicted to be one of the largest and most destructive typhoons to hit Japan since 1958.“Along with the 19 other teams, the Scottish Rugby Union signed the Rugby World Cup 2019 terms of participation, which clearly state in Section 5.3: ‘Where a pool Match cannot be commenced on the day in which it is scheduled, it shall not be postponed to the following day, and shall be considered as cancelled. In such situations, the result shall be declared a draw and Teams will be allocated two Match points each and no score registered.’”The clarification then concluded: “It would be inappropriate to make further comment at a time when we are fully focused on the safety of everyone and this weekend’s matches.”At the moment it feels like people are shouting over the top of each other. Social media is even less coherent at times like this. But Hagibis is coming and it makes its own terrible noise.Keep track of all the news from Japan via our Rugby World Cup home page.

The client for this project has a large art collection, and wanted to start a new chapter in life with his family in a house with museum-like qualities that would take advantage of this collection. The neighborhood surrounding the site is quiet, so in order to keep noise to a minimum and not create an intrusive feeling, we proposed a single-story reinforced concrete structure. Like the exterior, the interior features a monochrome color scheme that serves as a good background for artwork. The building and finishing materials were also carefully selected and kept to a minimum, giving the spaces an austere atmosphere.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe layout is extremely simple, with a family room in the center, a courtyard adjacent to that, and a master bedroom, children’s room, and hobby room occupying the wings on either side of the courtyard. While this symmetry gives the house a Western-style formality, the design also disrupts the symmetry in classic Japanese style by including steps and a private courtyard on only one side. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe family room facing the courtyard has a high ceiling and clerestory windows that run on the north and south sides. The natural light that pours through these windows is partially blocked by eaves that extend out 1.8 meters and have thin outer edges that give the building a light, floating feeling. The room’s coffered ceiling, divided into a 1.2-meter-square lattice, resembles the architecture in temples and sukiya-style structures, which are inspired by the elegance of the classic teahouse. In addition to serving the structural purpose of supporting the weight of the roof, the ceiling turns the building itself into a piece of minimalist artwork. Save this picture!SectionsBy integrating the client’s meticulously curated collection of artwork and designer furniture and lighting into the architecture, the spaces express individuality without being overly busy.

Volleyball struggle defensively, fall to Baylor in five sets

first_imgColin Post Twitter Linkedin printTCU Volleyball failed to earn the comeback victory Wednesday night, falling to Baylor 3-2. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.TCU fought through deficits again Wednesday to force a fifth set against Baylor; however, unlike last week’s 3-2 win over West Virginia, the Frogs could not complete the comeback.TCU lost the match 3-2 (17-25, 25-14, 15-25, 26-24, 8-15) to drop their conference record to 4-5.“I thought our team fought really hard tonight,” said head coach Jill Kramer. “I thought [our] offense was pretty balanced for the most part and we had some people step up.”In their matchup with the Bears earlier this season, TCU Volleyball was not able to handle the offensive firepower of Baylor and lost the match 3-1. After the first set of tonight’s match, it looked like this contest might end the same way. Bears outside hitter Yossiana Pressley recorded 7 kills while hitting .333 to lead Baylor to an easy 25-17 win.Pressley would finish the match with 30 kills and 11 digs.“Honestly, we gave them too many points in the first set,” Kramer said. “It was a lot of unforced errors on our side.”TCU had hit just .095 in the opening set, recording only 11 total kills.The story was much different in the second set, though. The Horned Frogs recorded a team hitting percentage of .423 while holding the Bears to just .069.A service ace by setter Tori Dilfer put the Frogs up 18-10 late in the set, and TCU had no problems from there, dominating the set 25-14.Setter Tori Dilfer (4) leads the Big 12 in service aces and assists. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.Dilfer, the Big 12’s leader in both service aces and assists, finished with two aces and 43 assists on the match.After cruising in the second set, the Horned Frogs returned to their first set woes. Unable to contain Pressley and Baylor’s outside hitter Aniah Philo, TCU trailed 12-4 early in the set. Philo had four kills in the set as part of 11 kills in the match.The Frogs looked lost offensively in the set, hitting .190 with only 8 total kills. They struggled to compete with the Bears and lost the set 25-15.Riding an electric crowd in the Rickel, the Frogs looked alive to start the fourth set. They scored first and continued to lead for most of the set.“Great crowd tonight,” Kramer said. “People came to stay. It was a long match, and they stuck around and got behind us the whole time.”The Frogs had finally found a source of offense in outside hitter Lexi MacLean and middle blocker Katie Clark. Both players recorded 4 kills in the fourth set alone, giving TCU enough to squeak out a 26-24 victory and force a fifth set.Senior outside hitter Lexi MacLean (14) gave the Frogs the life they needed to force a fifth set. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.MacLean finished the match with 9 kills and 12 digs, while Clark recorded 14 kills of her own.Following the same pattern they had all match, the Frogs had no answer for the Bears in the fifth set. Baylor started the set on a 3-0 run and never looked back. TCU was unable to penetrate the Bears defense, hitting a shockingly low -.095 and only recording 3 kills.The Frogs lost the final set 15-8 to drop the match 3-2.  The defeat lowers their overall record to 12-8.“You gotta play a lot sharper in the fifth set and we didn’t,” Kramer said. “Our certain pass game wasn’t as good as it had been in some of the previous sets, so we gotta get better there.”Next up, TCU heads to Lubbock to face Texas Tech. TCU defeated Texas Tech at home earlier this season, 3-1.“[We need to be] figuring out what we need to sharpen up a little bit these next two days before we play Tech because they’re a great team and a great team at home,” outside hitter Anna Walsh said.First serve against the Red Raiders is set for 1 p.m. Saturday Oct. 27.

A year of impunity in the murder of Edgar Amoro in Pagadian

first_img to go further No one has ever been arrested for the murder of journalist and teacher Edgar Amoro, which took place exactly one year ago today in Pagadian (on the southern island of Mindanao). Reporters Without Borders is outraged by this impunity, especially as the suspects move about openly in Pagadian. PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Organisation Filipina journalist still held although court dismissed case eleven days ago News On the first anniversary of journalist Edgar Amoro’s cowardly murder, Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the flagrant impunity prevailing in his case, in which arrest warrants have been issued but the suspects have never been detained although they flaunt themselves in public in Pagadian (on the southern island of Mindanao).The press freedom organisation also reiterated its solidarity with Amoro’s family, which has been fighting for justice in the face of threats that have forced it to flee Pagadian.”We call on Gen. Arturo Lomibao, the national chief of police, to do everything possible to ensure that the suspects are arrested and that a proper investigation is carried out,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Gen. Lomibao’s declared desire to put a stop to violence against the press should be reflected in the immediate arrests of the perpetrators and instigators of Amoro’s murder.”A journalist and teacher, Amoro, 46, was gunned down outside a school in Pagadian on 2 February 2005 in a killing directly linked to the May 2002 murder of fellow journalist Edgar Damalerio.”By killing my husband, they eliminated a key witness in the Damalerio case and a courageous man who was continuing to denounce corruption and social injustice in Pagadian,” Elvira Amoro told Reporters Without Borders. “During his programme on radio DXKP five days before he died, he read out an open letter criticizing the absence of the rule of law in Pagadian,” she said.In its own investigation, Reporters Without Borders established that friends and police superiors of Guillermo Wapile, a policeman who was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2005 for Damalerio’s murder, were involved in the Amoro killing.The two killers were inside the school where Amoro taught English. They could only have entered with the complicity of the two guards posted at the entrance, who were employees of a security agency run by an associate of Pagadian’s former police chief, Asuri Hawani. Dozens of people witnessed the murder but none gave information to the investigators for fear of reprisals. Hawani associates are said to have directly threatened witnesses.Arrests warrants were issued for the two suspected killers, “Madix” Maulana and Norhan Ambol, but the police have never picked them up although they have been seen openly on the streets of Pagadian for several months, according to a local journalist.Meanwhile, the Pagadian police have identified and arrested a miliary intelligence agent who is a suspect in the murder of radio journalist Rolly Canete two weeks ago, on 20 January. The breakthrough in this recent case came just a few days after Gen. Lomibao, the national police chief, visited the city.At least five journalists have been killed in Pagadian in the past five years. “There has been no lasting improvement in security in the city, and those who had Damalerio and Amoro killed have been left in peace,” Reporters Without Borders was told by editor Hernan de la Cruz of the Zamboanga Scribe, a local newspaper.
