TNK-BP moves to block $1.8bn share payout

first_img Tags: NULL RUSSIAN shareholders in TNK-BP have called an extraordinary board meeting to discuss cancelling a $1.8bn (£1.1bn) dividend payment, half of which would have gone to British partner BP.The latest twist in the feud between BP and the Russian shareholders in the joint venture comes after BP said it had offered its partners in TNK-BP an arbitration meeting, ahead of a court hearing that could overshadow its results tomorrow. AAR, a Russian consortium that owns half of TNK-BP, will hear tomorrow whether the High Court has granted it an injunction blocking BP’s $16bn (£10bn) share swap and exploration deal with Russia’s state-owned oil group Rosneft. AAR believes the agreement could breach TNK-BP’s right to first refusal on BP’s activities in Russia. But BP has written to TNK-BP chief executive and AAR member Mikhail Fridman to request a “fast track” arbitration meeting in Sweden to try and smooth the path for its Rosneft deal.“Under the shareholder agreements, the process for settling disputes if they can’t be settled within the shareholders is to go to independent arbitration in Sweden,” a BP spokesman said yesterday.

Peter Stephens | Tuesday, 26th January, 2021 For many people, achieving financial freedom is likely to be a main goal within their lifetimes. This will enable them to enjoy greater independence and, in some cases, a better quality of life.However, a large sum of money alone does not necessarily lead to greater financial independence. Rather, it could be the regular passive income it provides that can make the biggest impact on an individual’s financial outlook.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…Therefore, I think now could be a good time to start investing in cheap dividend stocks with long-term growth potential. Over time, they could make a real difference to an investor’s quality of life. It’s a strategy that  I’ve followed for years.Not that this should be done without being aware of the risks, of course. No share price is guaranteed to rise. And dividend payouts aren’t guaranteed either, unlike a set interest rate from a cash account. But over the long term, I’ve found it to be a good approach.Achieving financial freedom via a growing passive incomeBuilding a large portfolio during a lifetime is likely to be viewed as a valid means of achieving financial freedom by many investors. While this is partially correct, the reality is that spending the capital is rarely a good idea. Over time, the size of an investor’s portfolio will decline if they are spending capital, rather than the income it produces. This can mean that they eventually run out of money and face a tough financial situation.As such, a bigger influence on an individual’s financial prospects could come from the passive income provided by a sum of capital. For example, a large sum invested in dividend shares is likely to provide greater financial independence. It could produce a larger income return compared to capital held in cash savings at a low interest rate.Furthermore, the rate at which a passive income grows can have a significant impact on an individual’s financial freedom. Should it fail to rise at an above-inflation pace, they may find that their spending power deteriorates over time. As a result, buying high-yielding shares with the potential to offer dividend growth over a sustained time period could be a sound move as long as investors are aware of the risks.Investing today to achieve financial independenceClearly, how an individual invests today depends on their stage in life. For those investors seeking to achieve financial freedom in the long run, buying a diverse range of high-quality businesses at low prices could lead to impressive capital returns. A stock market rally that causes valuations to revert to their long-term averages could be ahead. This may produce high returns that catalyse an investor’s portfolio in the coming years.But some investors are seeking to make a passive income from their capital now. For them, investing in stocks with dividend growth prospects could be the main priority. They could include companies that pay out a low proportion of their profit as a dividend, as well as those businesses with bright financial futures. They may be able to afford to deliver strong dividend growth. And this may make a positive impact on an investor’s financial freedom in 2021 and beyond.

Burundi: Bishops express sorrow following death of President Pierre Nkurunziza

first_img Rector Albany, NY Rector Tampa, FL Rector Belleville, IL Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Hopkinsville, KY The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group [ACNS Digest] The House of Bishops of the Anglican Church of Burundi have expressed “great sorrow” at the death of President Pierre Nkurunziza. The bishops met on June 10 following the death of President Nkurunziza last Tuesday (June 9). Officials in Burundi say that the president died following a heart attack.Nkurunziza had announced his intention to stand down later this year, after 15 years in office, and he did not contest the country’s General Election last month. The president-elect, Evariste Ndayishimiye, was due to be sworn in during a handover ceremony in August. Following an emergency ruling by Burundi’s constitutional court, President Ndayishimiye will now be sworn in on Thursday (June 18). Both men are from the country’s CNDD-FDD party.In a communiqué following their meeting last week, the bishops expressed their condolences to Nkurunziza’s family, the government, and all Burundians. They urged people to be calm and united as a tribute to the late president, who they said “always called people to seek for unity and social cohesion.”In a statement, the Anglican Church of Burundi said that the House of Bishops appealed to other religious groups to join together in solidarity with the whole population in prayers during this hard time.The primate of Burundi, Archbishop Martin Blaise Nyaboho, issued the communiqué in the presence of the bishops representing the nine Anglican dioceses of the province. In a television broadcast he said that they were grateful for all the good work that Nkurunziza had done for his country during the last 15 years he was in power. He stressed that they will always remember what he achieved for the benefit and development of Burundi.All nine bishops in Burundi visited the State House in Ntare Rushatsi to sign the book of condolence.

Please enter your email address here 63 new state troopers join the ranks of the patrol, 16 to Orange/Osceola63 new state troopers graduated from the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Training Academy. The graduates join the more than 1,900 troopers who patrol the state’s roads and communities each day to protect and assist Florida residents and visitors.“These new troopers selflessly chose to take the oath to protect our state and put the safety and well-being of others above all else,” said DHSMV Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes. “I am grateful for their decision to serve, and am confident they will continue FHP’s 78-year legacy of courtesy, service, and protection.”Members of the 135th basic recruit class went through 28 weeks of intense physical and classroom training covering topics such as law, firearms, defensive tactics, vehicle operations, human relations and first aid. While at the FHP Training Academy, recruits also participated in several community service activities, including blood drives and volunteering to help those living with developmental disabilities.“This graduating class represents the future of this agency. I commend them for their dedication and commitment, and I wish them well in their career with the patrol,” said Colonel Gene Spaulding, Director of the Florida Highway Patrol. “We are proud of our history, and we are pleased to have new troopers to carry on FHP’s commitment toward a safer Florida.”Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, an ardent supporter of the FHP, delivered the keynote address during the graduation ceremony.“Thousands of people applied to be a part of the Florida Highway Patrol’s 135th Basic Recruit Class, but just 63 brave men and women made it through to graduation,” said Attorney General Pam Bondi. “I want to congratulate these new troopers and thank them for their willingness to serve and sacrifice to keep us safe.”Upon reporting to their duty stations, the new troopers will be placed with a certified Field Training Officer (FTO). Troopers will work in tandem with their FTOs for up to 12 weeks prior to being released to solo duty.The FHP is now hiring for the 138th basic recruit class starting October 2017, and applicants who graduate from the FHP Training Academy may be able to work where they call home.

For the second consecutive year, Farm Share, a 28-year-old food nonprofit that serves all of Florida, will work hand-in-hand with the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) as the official 2019 Florida food charity partner. Participants in all 50 states can take partake in the nation’s largest one-day food drive to help feed Americans in need by leaving non-perishable goods outside their mailboxes.For 26 years, the NALC has teamed up with nonprofits nationwide via Stamp Out Hunger, helping more than 50 million people in America who suffer from hunger.“The Farm Share team is thrilled to partner with Stamp Out Hunger for the second year in a row to help our neighbors throughout the state of Florida,” said Farm Share Chief Operating Officer Stephen Shelley. “We invite everyone to participate and spread the news so that we can make an even bigger impact this year in the lives of people and families struggling with food insecurity.”On May 11th, letter carriers and volunteers will collect donations so Farm Share, in conjunction with its 2,000 partners across Florida, can distribute the food where it is most needed. Farm Share is based in Homestead with operations in Jacksonville, Quincy, Pompano Beach, and Florida City. During last year’s Stamp Out Hunger, more than 10 million pounds of food were collected in Florida, continuing its status as the No. 1 state for cans collected over the last decade.Known for its mission to make sure no Floridian goes hungry and that no food goes to waste, Farm Share is often celebrated for its longstanding relationships with Florida farmers to retrieve imperfect, yet perfectly good, produce that would otherwise be thrown away due to aesthetic blemishes, and distribute it back into Florida communities. In 2018, Farm Share delivered more than 55 millions pounds of food to more than 17.5 million households.“It’s an honor to partner with Farm Share again,” said NALC State President of Florida Al Friedman. “We are thrilled to continue to help give more food than ever to those who need it most.”How to Help: Fill up the Farm Share bag left in mailboxes with non-perishable foods, and leave the bag next to your mailbox before the regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 11th.

The conception of an apartment building in Cerdà’s Eixample in Barcelona 150 years after the implementation of the famous “Plan Cerdà” induces a reflection how to conceive the project and specifically the facades in a way that responds to the necessities of the 21st century while maintaining a dialogue and respect for the years of history.Save this picture!© José HeviaThe traditional elements as the balcony, the blinds, the cornices and the colors are reinterpreted here in a way that not only integrates into the built environment, but does so in a way that incorporates both passive and active energy saving solutions. Save this picture!© José HeviaThe building program is made up of 27 apartments and two commercial spaces with attics that look out over Casp Street.  The typical floor houses 5 one and two bedroom apartments.  The top floor houses two apartments with two bedrooms and two one-bedroom apartments, while the ground floor is made up of three duplex apartments, each with a garden, distributed on the back side of the building looking out over the patio in the block’s interior. Two floors underground provide garage space for 34 vehicles. The street facade is composed as a dialogue between fixed panels formed by steel framed vertical ceramic planks, and sliding aluminum blinds providing the necessary privacy and lighting control. Simultaneously the solution meets with the strict regulations of the Eixample area. Save this picture!© José HeviaA steel reticule that limits the broad windows of the apartments forms the block’s patio facade.  Folding aluminum blinds that serve to create a dynamic and changing façade provides solar protection and privacy here. On the roof of the building solar panels are installed and connected to the heating system of the building in order to reduce energy use of the hot water production. This, in combination with the cross ventilation of the apartments created by large interior patios of the block and the passive solar protection of the exterior, allows the building’s functioning with only a minimum contribution from the air conditioning system. Save this picture!© José HeviaThe principal building materials (blinds, ceramic elements, and aluminum window frames) are recyclable.

DEC adds online donation facility for Asian floods disaster appeal

first_imgThe appeal consists simply of the following, in capitals, and with no photo or illustration: “DEC TSUNAMI EARTHQUAKE APPEALYOU CAN HELP – EVERY PENNY COUNTSDONATE HERE:”The online credit/debit card donation facility, handled by securetrading.net, was unavailable, unfortunately, when UK Fundraising tried to access it from 23.22 – 23.25. It is to be hoped that this was due to a high demand for its facility from donors. When the page was finally accessed it loaded very slowly indeed, taking over one minute to load completely.A subsequent update to the page explained that the reason was indeed heavy traffic: “Due to high volume of traffic on our website you may experience difficulty making a donation online if this is the case, you can make a credit card donation by telephone on 0870 60 60 900 or please please try later, we need your money.” The ability to handle many near simultaneous donations over a very short period is a key requirement of online emergency appeals, but it seems the DEC site doesn’t yet have this functionality. Howard Lake | 29 December 2004 | News Four days after the devastating floods in the Bay of Bengal the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) has started accepting online donations for its emergency appeal which it launched yesterday.The DEC’s Tsunami Earthquake Appeal today began accepting online credit and debit card donations, following the appeal’s launch yesterday when it offered a telephone donations service.The Tsunami Earthquake Appeal is featured on the DEC’s front page, although the site remains dominated by information about the current Sudan emergency appeal. “More Information Will Be Posted Shortly – Please Come Back Soon” reads the notice published today underneath the link to the online donation facility.

The Wheel to launch daily deal fundraising tool for Irish charities

Deal Effect, which brings together 34 mostly smaller charities, aims to cash in on the popularity of daily deal websites where consumers get a bargain, companies get the business and the participating charities get 11% of the value of transactions. It is due to launch in June. “Deal Effect is the modern version of the Christmas card, enabling relatively small but repeat revenues, as well as a way of giving something back to donors without always asking them for money,” Wheel CEO Deirdre Garvey told the Sunday Times.

The findings reveal that younger generations are increasing connecting with the causes they are interested in via their mobiles. Overall, 13% of the $481 million in online donations raised by leading organisations in 2015 were made from mobile devices.The study also looked at churn. By the end of 2015, groups in the study had lost an average of 11.8% of the subscribers they had on January 1, with 6.2% due to unsubscribes, and 5.6% from hard bounces. However, overall, churn is down. For the organisations that tracked list changes in 2014 and 2015, churn rates were down by more than 75% year-over-year.The study is M+R’s tenth in-depth report with Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN) on nonprofit online fundraising, advocacy, and marketing. 105 nonprofits participated, including Planned Parenthood, Oxfam America, GLAD, and U.S. Fund for UNICEF.

To oppose Title IX ‘revisions’ send public comments by Jan. 28

first_imgThe U.S. Department of Education’s proposed revision of Title IX regulations contradicts the intent of those rules addressing sexual harassment, assault and abuse in K-12 schools and federally funded colleges and universities. Instead of helping institutions deal forthrightly with such issues, the proposed changes help institutions avoid them and make it harder for survivors, predominantly of oppressed genders, to confront perpetrators, win justice and put an end to rape culture.   Of students, more than 1 in 5 women, nearly 1 in 4 transgender and gender-nonconforming people, and nearly 1 in 18 men are sexually assaulted annually. Women and girls of color, pregnant students, parents, LGBTQ or gender-nonconforming people are often ignored, punished or labeled “promiscuous.” Two major DOE changes would make it harder to bring charges against an assailant. One raises the standard for a case from “preponderance of evidence” to “clear and convincing evidence.” The other upgrades harassment from “unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature” to “unwelcome conduct on the basis of sex that is so severe, pervasive and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person access to the [institution’s] education program or activity.” Such definitions would help institutions dismiss all but the most blatant cases.Institutions are only responsible for sexual abuse occurring within “school-sponsored activity”; all electronic communication is excluded. While students once reported abuse to a trusted teacher, only a Title IX coordinator with “the authority to institute corrective measures” or a K-12 teacher who has “actual knowledge” of abuse can help survivors. Institutions can now propose mediation, often used to resolve peer conflict, though that is never appropriate for sexual assault cases. The most controversial aspect of the proposed regulations involves having sexual assault survivors be cross-examined by an advisor for the accused, with an advisor for the survivor likewise cross-examining the accused. While this was included to supposedly promote due process, it’s also where racist bias persists. Although the DOE’s Office of Civil Rights does not collect data on race in Title IX cases, analysis of cases at a private college where 4.2 percent of students were Black showed 50 percent of sexual-violation accusations were against Black students. Can mere cross-examination eliminate racist bias, given the raging racism racheted up by the Trump administration? Not given the virulent, violent U.S. history of Black men lynched or imprisoned for sexual assault. See National Women’s Law Center (nwlc.org) for more analysis.Don’t let DOE Secretary Betsy DeVos get away with destroying Title IX. Public comments are accepted until Jan. 28; all submissions are said to be considered in the final revision. Post comments on regulations.gov under the title “Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Sex in Education Programs or Activities Receiving Federal Financial Assistance” (listed on Nov. 29). The NWLC provides two kinds of comments: A prewritten statement  (tinyurl.com/y9tmos4d) and a personal, customizable comment (tinyurl.com/y92v5szu). Submit before the Jan. 28 deadline!

This difference in stipulated age of marriage for men and women is based on on patriarchal stereotypes, has no scientific backing, perpetrates de jure and de facto inequality against women, and goes completely against the global trends, the petitioner states.The plea goes on to highlight the provisions under various legislations which stipulate the age of marriage as being discriminatory:Section 60(1) of the Indian Christian Marriage Act, 1872;Section 3(1)(c) of the Parsi Marriage and Divorce Act, 1936; Section 4(c) of the Special Marriage Act, 1954;Section 5(iii) of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955;Section 2(a) of the Prohibition of Child Marriage Act, 2006. The petitioner has also elaborated that India’s International Human Rights obligations under the provisions of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (“CEDAW”), which it ratified in 1993, inform the content of Articles 14, 15 and 21 of the Constitution which obliges state parties “take all appropriate measures… [t]o modify social and cultural patterns of conduct of men and women, with a view to achieving the elimination of prejudices and customary and all other practices which are based on the idea of inferiority or the superiority of either of the sexes or on stereotyped roles for men and women.”In this context, the petitioner has stated that any provision that perpetrates or reinforces discriminatory stereotypes against a class of persons is manifestly arbitrary and a fortiori violative of Articles 14, 15 and 21.”Differential age limit is based solely on stereotypes. The Law Commission has observed that there exists no scientific basis for such distinction and that differential limit “simply contributes to the stereotype that wives must be younger than their husbands”. Likewise, Committee on Elimination of Discrimination against Women has noted that: “Some countries provide for different ages for marriage for men and women. As such provisions assume incorrectly that women have a different rate of intellectual development from men, or that their stage of physical and intellectual development at marriage is immaterial, these provisions should be abolished. In other countries, the betrothal of girls or undertakings by family members on their behalf is permitted. Such measures contravene not only the Convention, but also women’s right freely to choose her partner.” – Excerpt of Plea by Ashwani Kumar UpadhyayIt is averred that differential limit is de facto unequal as between men-women. It aggravates social inequality, thereby breaching Articles 14,15,21. It is a social reality that women in a married relationship are expected to perform a subordinate role vis-à-vis the husband. Hence, there exists a power imbalance between the husband and wife in most marital relationships. This power imbalance is deeply aggravated by the age differential, because age itself constitutes a hierarchy of power, the plea states.”A younger spouse is therefore expected to respect and be servile to her elder partner, which aggravates the pre-existing gender-based hierarchy in the marital relationship.”It is contended that discriminatory provisions should be read down to equalise minimum age of marriage for both men and women at 21 years in light of the global trends that point in this direction.Thus, stating that since similar petitions are pending in two high courts which are more or less common in nature and have similar factual and legal issues, respondents may face extreme difficulty in effectively conducting the same in different Courts and also, that here is every possibility that different judgments and views may be taken by both high courts & thus it be best that all grounds and contentions are decided by a common judgment by the top court.”For this reason also, all these matters require to be withdrawn from the respective High Courts and be transferred to this Hon’ble Court so that all grounds-contentions can be decided by common judgment in order to ensure uniformity in directions. Moreover, the Judgment by this Hon’ble Court will be binding for all and also save precious time of the judicial system,” the petitioner prays.Alternatively, the petitioner has prayed for a direction to the Central Government to take appropriate steps to remove the anomalies in the minimum age of marriage and make it ‘gender neutral, religion neutral and uniform for all citizens’ in spirit of the Articles 14, 15, 21 and International Conventions.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
