China considers probe into BHP Billiton’s bid for Potash Corp

first_img China may launch an antimonopoly probe into BHP Billiton’s $39bn (£25bn) bid for Canada’s Potash Corp, the China Business News has claimed.China will also review the merger of two Russian potash firms – Uralkali and Silvinit – given the major impact the two deals would have on China, the paper cited the unnamed source as saying.The report was another indicator that China, as the world’s biggest importer of fertiliser, is wary of further concentration in the market, following BHP Billiton’s launch of a hostile bid for Potash Corp last month.BHP declined to comment on the Chinese newspaper report.The company has said the deal only needs approvals from regulators in Canada and the United States, where Potash Corp sells around half its production.China buys around seven per cent of the output of Potash Corp, which controls around one-fifth of world production of the key crop nutrient.BHP Billiton does not currently produce any potash but does have potash resources it could develop in the future.China’s largest fertiliser distributor, Sinofert Holdings Ltd, said last week it was worried about the impact that a BHP deal would have but would not say if its parent, Sinochem, was planning a rival offer.Government departments and state-owned Sinochem Group have held meetings recently to review the possible impact the two high profile acquisitions could have on China and about possible countermeasures, according to the source quoted by China Business News.Industry analysts have mentioned Chinese companies or the government’s sovereign wealth fund as possible counter-bidders against BHP. whatsapp Wednesday 1 September 2010 3:36 am Share Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsUndoAll Things Auto | Search AdsBuick’s New Lineup Is Truly StunningAll Things Auto | Search AdsUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoThe No Cost Solar ProgramGet Paid To Install Solar + Tesla Battery For No Cost At Install and Save ThousandsThe No Cost Solar ProgramUndoOne-N-Done | 7-Minute WorkoutAdvertisement 7 Minutes a Day To a Flat Stomach By Using This 1 Easy ExerciseOne-N-Done | 7-Minute WorkoutUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndo whatsappcenter_img John Dunne Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org China considers probe into BHP Billiton’s bid for Potash Corp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Chrysalis sold its same-name record label to EMI in 1991, sold book publishing operations to Anova Books in 2005, and sold Chrysalis Radio to Global Radio for £170m in 2007, to leave only the international music publishing division. alison.lock Chrysalis in £107m takeover deal last_img read more

Video games threaten to steal millennial fans from sports: Liverpool CEO

first_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Sports face a threat to lose millennial fans to video gaming. This fear is expressed by Premier League club Liverpool Chief Executive Peter Moore.Moore’s concerns are no mere apprehensions. His opinion is based on the television audience and match attendance figures of millennial male fan base. He was particularly concerned about football. However, the threat to other sports too cannot be ruled out.

What keeps him up at night, he says, is Fortnite, the $15bn a year, free-to-play video game taking the world by storm.“If we don’t build technological prowess as a club we will lose them (young fans),” Moore had told Arabianbusiness.com. “There’s so much pressure on time now and only 24 hours in a day, (and) there are only so many hours to play Fortnite.”Premier League leaders Liverpool CEO Moore has said that football must embrace new technologies to avoid losing younger fans to things like video games. The man has been closely associated with both the worlds and witnessed the sports and gaming industry from close quarters.Also Read: Sports Business : Premier League giant Liverpool Football Club up for saleSearch for Premier League CEO continues, BBC’s Tim Davie declines offerEmirates most recognised among Premier League Shirt sponsors“We are an industry that needs to harness technology to make sure we don’t miss an entire generation of young people growing up that don’t have that love for football,” he says. “We need to package content in bites of 60 to 90 seconds to keep their engagement.”Moore has previously held roles with video game companies Sega of America and EA Sports, the developers and publishers of video games. He has been associated with the top-flight English football outfit since 2017.Moore says the Merseyside club are not only battling with other teams for new fans, but also with video games like Fortnite. The 64-year-old fears that younger fans are no longer happy to sit and watch full 90-minute games, and pointed to viewing and attendance figures of millennial males as a particular cause for concern.“Ninety minutes is a long time for a millennial male to sit down on a couch,” Moore told the Arabian Business magazine. “When I look at viewing and attendance figures of millennial males, I’m concerned as a chief executive of a football club that relies on the next generation of fans coming through.“If we don’t build technological prowess as a club we will lose them. There’s so much pressure on time now and only 24 hours in a day… there are only so many hours to play Fortnite.”Also Read: Liverpool chief executive reveals 6,000 seat Anfield expansionThe study claims that 64% of young people prefer social sports content to TV.According to Moore, the clubs in order to compete with new offerings now need to find different routes to millennial audiences through pieces of content that have a lifespan beyond the 90 minutes of a football game.“We are an industry that needs to harness technology to make sure we don’t miss an entire generation of young people growing up that don’t have that love for football. We need to package content in bites of 60 to 90 seconds to keep their engagement.”Liverpool had recorded 463 million interactions across their four main social media channels in 2018, a figure that was only bettered in England by Manchester United and ranked fifth in world football.Moore also revealed that Liverpool are working with technology giant IBM to optimise their website and apps so that they can provide fans with more personalised, relevant content that they are more likely to consume.“That’s something I learned in video games. I can push you all kinds of stuff on particular players, but if you’re only interested in Mohamed Salah, and I don’t know that, my outreach is wasted,” Moore added.“You might like Gini Wijnaldum. The more we learn about you, the more we can push Gini Wijnaldum stuff that you’ll click or engage. The key is that I need to know who you are.”Also Read: Premier League opens Asia-Pacific office in SingaporeSusanna Dinnage backs out from taking up Premier League’s CEO positionlast_img read more

Chance*ster combines raffles, skill and prizes to raise funds for charities

first_img Chance*ster is a new gaming site that aims to raise funds for charities and good causes by offering valuable prizes that individuals can try to win by guessing their value.Prizes include holidays, designers goods and electronic items.Dave Paton, Chance*ster founder, said: “It’s about the fusion of online fundraising and gaming… By creating a platform that supports a growing number of charities, we’re giving people a choice of good causes to choose from, while giving them real opportunities to win a diverse range of desirable items and experiences.” Advertisement  34 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis He added that the odds are generally good for players: “some games have fewer than 200 tickets” he said.Players don’t have to guess the exact value of the prize to the charity. If their estimate falls within the range shown their ticket qualifies for the draw.Chance*ster deducts 12% of gross proceeds as its fee and VAT and ticket sales. It then deducts the cost of the prize, which varies depending on whether the item is purchased through a retail partner or whether it is donated or subsidised by charity supporters. The proceeds are then donated to the chosen charity.“Many of our games return 40-50% of the ticket sales to the charity”, said Paton.The Nathan Timothy Foundation, The Songwriting charity, is using Chance*ster. Director of Engagement John Quinn said: “There’s no risk or cost to us, we gain a valuable extra income stream, increase awareness to our cause and it creates a good feeling among donors to have a chance of winning the great prizes available.” Howard Lake | 10 July 2013 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Pasadena Assemblymember’s Bill Requiring Diversity on Corporate Boards Signed into Law

Gavin Newsom on Wednesday signed into law legislation authored by former Pasadena City Councilman and current state Assemblyman Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) requiring the inclusion of underrepresented groups on corporate boards in California.Holden’s Assembly Bill 979 requires publicly held corporations headquartered in California to have at least one director from an underrepresented community by the close of 2021.“The new law represents a big step forward for racial equity,” Holden said in a prepared statement. “While some corporations were already leading the way to combat implicit bias, now all of California’s corporate boards will better reflect the diversity of our state. This is a win-win as ethnically diverse boards have shown to outperform those that lack diversity.”In addition to the 2021 benchmark, AB 979 also requires corporate boards to include two members from underrepresented communities for corporations with more than four members, while corporations with more than nine must have a minimum of three by 2022. The bill defines a director from an underrepresented community as an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identifies as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.Soon after the social unrest following the officer-involved death of George Floyd on May 25, many corporations publicly stated their support for diversity and Black Lives Matter. Researchers, however, have pointed out that this public support for social justice movements often does not lead to long-term structural change in hiring and retention policies of a diverse staff and leadership.The current statistics are stark. The Deloitte Missing Pieces Report: The 2018 Board Diversity Census of Women and Minorities on Fortune 500 Boards found that out of 1,222 new board members of Fortune 100 companies, 77 percent were white.“The lack of diversity on California’s boards and upper-level corporate positions is a challenge we urged corporations to address on their own during our time in the Legislature,” said Assemblymember Christina Garcia.“However, it is clear we can no longer wait for corporations to figure it out on their own. By ensuring diversity on their boards, we know the corporations are more likely to both create opportunities for people of color and give them the support to thrive within that corporation. I’m excited this bill is signed and look forward to California continuing to lead the way in our fight for racial equity in general,” Garcia said.“This measure recognizes that including the perspectives of underrepresented groups in leadership roles will result in more innovation, improved productivity, and better economic outcomes,” said Assemblymember David Chiu, chair of the Asian Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus.“I applaud Gov. Newsom for signing this important bill to ensure corporate boards reflect the diversity of our state and are able to truly serve California’s diverse population,” said Chiu.

‘Alarming Situation Where Large Number Of Citizens Are Homeless’: Bombay High Court Expresses Concern Over Unfinished Development Projects

Recording its concern the Bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and GS Kulkarni remarked, “This has created an alarming situation, to the effect that large number of citizens are homeless and are made to suffer at the hands of such developers.”The Court was hearing a plea moved by Shakil Mohammad and 36 others, tenants of corporation land handed over to a developer in 2015 for the construction of a building. The building that originally stood in the area was demolished to make way for the new one, the Chief Justice’s Order narrates. Alarmed that that construction on the proposed building progressed only to the plinth level despite the passage of five years, the Bench expressed concern that the petitioners were without a roof over their heads since then. The Court also noted that “such developers have no wherewithal to undertake a redevelopment project.” Therefore, the Court called upon the Municipal Corporation is to file an affidavit explaining the steps it proposed to take with regard to the project in question.Apart from this, certain broader questions were also posed to the Corporation in respect of its policy on redevelopment. The Court queried whether: the existing policy that allowed tenants of corporation land (“a public largesse”, as the Court stated) to hand over property to developers unable to undertake such a project can be sustained, there was a need to draw up a new policy where only bona fide, genuine and competent developers who could fulfil expected norms and complete the construction were allowed appointment such developers could be appointed “only by the municipal corporation.” Additionally, the Court asked the State Government to consider the question of maintaining a panel of competent developers who could be entrusted with the work of development/re-development.A decision on this count was imperative to ensure that projects were completed in a timebound manner and “there would be certainty of a roof over their heads.””This is also the object of the relevant social legislations”, the Bench added.The Bench therefore directed the State Government and the Municipal Corporation to file affidavits in this respect.Advocate M.A. Khan argued the petitioners.

Global spatial ecology of three closely-related gadfly petrels

first_imgThe conservation status and taxonomy of the three gadfly petrels that breed in Macaronesia is still discussed partly due to the scarce information on their spatial ecology. Using geolocator and capture-mark-recapture data, we examined phenology, natal philopatry and breeding-site fidelity, year-round distribution, habitat usage and at-sea activity of the three closely-related gadfly petrels that breed in Macaronesia: Zino’s petrel Pterodroma madeira, Desertas petrel P. deserta and Cape Verde petrel P. feae. All P. feae remained around the breeding area during their non-breeding season, whereas P. madeira and P. deserta dispersed far from their colony, migrating either to the Cape Verde region, further south to equatorial waters in the central Atlantic, or to the Brazil Current. The three taxa displayed a clear allochrony in timing of breeding. Habitat modelling and at-sea activity patterns highlighted similar environmental preferences and foraging behaviours of the three taxa. Finally, no chick or adult was recaptured away from its natal site and survival estimates were relatively high at all study sites, indicating strong philopatry and breeding-site fidelity for the three taxa. The combination of high philopatry, marked breeding asynchrony and substantial spatio-temporal segregation of their year-round distribution suggest very limited gene flow among the three taxa.last_img read more
